Pound for piper

The Piper Alpha Memorial in Aberdeen commemorates the 167 souls who lost their lives in the Piper Alpha disaster. The Pound for Piper Memorial Trust aims to raise £1million by the 6th July 2013 in order to repair the memorial and pay for the upkeep of the gardens for many years to come.

Story

I would love to raise as much as possible to contribute to the pound for piper memorial. This is a charity very close to my heart and my families.

Most of you will have there of the piper Alpha disaster on the 6th of July 1988. Many men's lives were taken that night, one of them being my Dad, David William Henderson. I was unfortunate enough to not have the chance to ever meet this fabulous man who I have heard so many great stories about, as I born just 8 days after the disaster. 

Many men were not found, however we were lucky enough to get him back. And this is the exact reason why the memorial gardens should be getting the loving care that it deservam. Many families have no grave to visit and the gardens is a lovely, peaceful place for those to pay their respects. 

In memory of my Dad I would like to raise as much as possible! To represent the 8 days we missed out on meeting I would like to challenge myself on 8 different fundraising events to get the pennies rolling in, this page being one of them. 

So please donate whatever you can, doesn't matter how big or small. Every little counts. Help me on my mission to make my Dad proud 

Love and Many Thanks 

Kerri
