Rather than bringing flowers to his funeral, John wished instead for us to donate the money to a charity that re-homes dogs and cats in the local area.
We chose Sesaw because of the work they do in Essex - combining two of John's loves - dogs and the local area.
You can donate through this page, or bring your donation to the funeral or wake.
Thanks for taking the time to donate and thanks for your generosity!
