Memorial Bench in Honour of Sam

Hi everyone,

As many of you know, we lost a beautiful soul, Samuel Jacklyn, in July this year to suicide. To honour this amazing boy taken from us all too soon, we would like to install a memorial bench in Sam’s name down at City Beach, as he loved the ocean. The idea is that this bench will be a peaceful place for people to visit, reflect and remember Sam.

We have set up this page for anyone who would like to make a contribution towards memorialising the incredible person Sam was and the impact he had, and still continues to have, on so many lives. The cost of installing the bench is approximately $2500, so that is the goal. No amount is too small and anyone is welcome to contribute. At the same time there is absolutely no obligation to contribute anything - the page has simply been set up as an option for those who feel that they want to help pay tribute.  

Thank you all for your kind donations, it is so greatly appreciated ❤️
