Dave Slocombe's Commemorative Tree

On the 24th January we lost our Dad & Husband; David Slocombe. He leaves behind his wife Rosemary and his three children Chris, Adam and Tim.

Along with his request to be cremated he had mentioned to Mum that he would like to have his ashes planted with a tree, and we would like to honor this.
After looking around, we have settled on Prestwold Natural Burial Grounds.

Since his passing the outpoor of support we have received has been truly amazing and shows how many people appreciated and respected Dad.
With this in mind, we thought the best way that we can all commemorate his life is to fundraise the money for the tree.

Anything above the goal will go towards extras for the plot (I.e birdboxes)

The tree will be planted in early spring, and everyone will be more than welcome to visit him.

Id like to to take this opportunity to thank anyone that considers donating towards the tree, words cannot describe the appreciation that we have.

Rosemary, Chris, Adam & Tim
