John’s son Andrew writes, “We have had a number of requests for information about thanksgiving services and donations. Obviously, any organisation of a thanksgiving service is pointless at the moment and will have to wait until lockdown is completely over, which we suspect will be sometime. We would however, like to give people the opportunity to make a donation to my father’s chosen charities, Birmingham Crisis Centre and Macmillan and have set up an online page through which donations can be made.”
You can contribute with a donation, a virtual candle or a story. You can also upload photos or videos of John if you have them. Thank you in advance for all your contributions. All funds raised will go towards the two charities most dear to John’s heart.
