£520raised of £1,500 target by 37 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,500 to help fund a permanent memorial in honour of Daniel Downing at his primary school.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


On the 6th July 2017, my world changed. My youngest son (5 years old) was sent for an MRI scan to find out if he had a problem with his eyes. Sadly he was disagnosied with DIPG ( diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) this tumor is 0% survival and has an average life expentancy of 9 Months. Sadly my son lasted 8 months and fought valiantly until his final breath which he took in my arms at 0258 on 4th February 2018.

Together myself and his school are trying to raise funds in order to have a permanant memorial put in place in the school in Daniels Honour. We are holding a super hero fun day to help towards this.

Daniel was a much loved cheeky chappie who loved Marvel and most importantly Deadpool. Ryan Renolds facetimed Daniel and made his dream come true. He has visit from spiderman and these things rocked his world.

Daniel was very much loved at his school and He loved being there. His school has been amazing. Throughout everything. Even now with my eldest son Jack (9 years old).

If we can all dig deep and help have this memorial be put in place in memory of my son, I would be eternally grateful. I am grateful to Eggbuckland Vale Primary School for wanting to have a memorial in honor of my gorgeous boy and for wanting his memory to live on.
