Story

In the memory of our Dad,  friends and family have chosen to help to raise money for the hospital ward that cared for Richard.

Will (a friend of Dads) has spoken to Whatman Ward and they are in need of television screens for the patients....... this would be a great gift as we all know how much Rich loved to watch films!

The televisions will be gifted to the ward and a plaque will be mounted in his memory.

Martyn and I are still devastated at losing our Dad and are still struggling to come to terms with it, along with some of his close friends.  It is his best friend Phil and his sister Jacky, along with Terri, Mark and family members such as Uncle Alan, Auntie Ally and Uncle Bryan that have suggested and encouraged us to help raise the money.  We have cried a lot over the past few weeks, shared stories, laughed a bit, tried to be normal and hopefully have supported each other.........

Raising the money has given us a focus and a purpose .  It is also helping to keep his memory alive...... we are proud of our Dad and would like nothing more than a plaque on the wall in his memory!

We would like to thank you for reading our just giving page.  A HUGE thank you in advance should you be so kind as to leave a donation
