Thame Group Says Thanks 2000 Times

Thame Town

8:01am 26th January 2014

An anonymous good-samaritan has donated enough money to pay off the Thame Youth Memorial's debt.

The memorial garden is to remember young people from the area who've died and was completed last year.

Organisers said they entered 2014 with a target of £2500 to raise, to clear the balance of the costs to create the Memorial garden.

The Trustees had been planning a number of events and making suitable approaches to achieve their goals.

But now a private individual, has come forward to donate £2500 to clear the balance.

A representative of the Memorial told Mix 96:

"To say that I was stunned is an understatement, on behalf of everyone involved in this project, I have given our heartfelt thanks for their incredible support.

This means that any fundraising we carry out now will cover ongoing maintenance and future dedications within the Memorial.

It's a very proud moment for everyone that has given time, money, passion, tears and love to the project - on behalf of all the Trustees, we thank you for your commitment."
