Father's Memorial Bench

We are raising money to dedicate a bench at Richmond Park to my belated Father, who sadly passed away due to a brain haemorrhage 2 years ago on 1 October 2016. He was just 48 years old.

We had initially attempted to dedicate a bench to Chi Geun 2 years ago, but we were informed that there weren't any spaces at the time and also for the foreseeable future. However, recently we received an email, regarding new benches available in the park. I made some enquiries with the park and they offered a memorial bench for £7,500. This covers the installation of a new bench in the grounds, a memorial plaque and maintaining the bench in the entire duration of its lifetime. Thereby, we would like to raise the fund for the bench with your generous support.

Chi Geun (윤치근) was a very loving family man. He was a loving Son, Brother, Friend and most importantly, Husband and Father. Chi Geun has touched everyone's hearts whoever came in or out of his life over the years and all have great happy memories, but most of all, everyone remembers how gentle and kind he was. His kindness was not only shown during his lifetime but after his death when he donated all of his organs to people in need.

Those who knew Chi Geun will know that Richmond Park held a special place in his heart. He loved the park and spent much of his free time there. It would mean a lot to us if Chi Geun's bench could be somewhere friends and family can remember him, pay respects and enjoy the memories of him that we all hold dear.

Any help is much appreciated and we would be forever thankful. Whatever amount you can spare will be gratefully received and every donation, however, big or small will go a long way to help us reach our target.

Thank you.

Yours Sincerely,
The Yoon Family
