Jack Merritt was one of two victims murdered on Friday 29th November in the London Bridge Terror Attack.
We are all devastated by Jack's death but determined to celebrate him and raise money for causes he cared dearly about.
Jack was proud. Jack was absorbingly intelligent. Jack was fiercely loyal. Jack loved music, art, eating good food with his family, and having more than one pint with his mates.
And on that point we, his friends and family, are going to throw one hell of a celebration for him. Because my god, did that boy know how to party.
We are raising money for a celebration of Jack's life. All the things he loved - for his closest friends and family. We will keep costs to a minimum. Services will be provided free or discounted where possible.
This is not the end, this is a beginning.
All additional money will be donated to Jack's legacy.
Chosen charitable donations:
- Learning Together (the prison rehabilitation and learning programme Jack worked at) - The Grenfell Foundation - The Stephen Lawrence Trust
+ Others to be decided by the family at a later date
