Weʼve raised £405 to Create a Bench for Pip
- Manchester, United Kingdom
- Funded on Thursday, 2nd November 2017
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.
I am Marie McManus the mother of Pip McManus.
My beautiful daughter Pip took her own life on December 9th 2015 when she was just 15 years old. The tear in the thread of our family will never be mended. Pip spent her last 3 years fighting against anorexia, malnutrition, depression and self harm. I do not want Pips life and suffering to have been in vain, whenever she was able, she tried to help others suffering from similar conditions.
Pip was a beautiful, artistic caring girl and I know she would have loved a creative piece of art in the form of a bench, so that all her friends can visit and think of the happy times they spent together.
This bench will be carved by the artist Jason Turpin-Thomson and the carvings will incorporate everything special to Pip and her family and friends. It will be positioned in a place that Pip loved, for all to enjoy.
With your kindness and support this piece of art will be of great healing and comfort to myself, my family and all of Pip's beautiful friends.
With all my love
