Quamari Barnes Memorial Fund

£40,060 of £20,000 goal

Raised by 1,343 people in 31 months
On January 23rd 2017, we unexpectedly lost Quamari Serunkuma Barnes in a horrific attack outside his school.

We send our children to school and trust that they are safe but Quamari was chased down outside his school gates and stabbed to death.

He was a respectful, loving good boy and it truly breaks my heart that we lost him in this way.

He wasn't in gangs, drugs or any crimes. He was just a beautiful boy who loved his friends and family.

Quamari was my Godson, and I have set up this account with the permission of his parents to support and assist them through this difficult time. They will be receiving all of the funds from this campaign.

We are asking for 20,000 to cover all funeral and burial expenses and other expenses they may incur.

Our family thanks everyone for their thoughts and prayers during this horrendous time.

We would appreciate any donations.

Please help spread the word!

Today the young man that callously killed our Quamari has received a Guilty of Murder verdict in the Old Bailey.

I am thankful that he must face accountability for his action but honestly there is no joy or happiness in this situation.

Ultimately everyone has lost, we lost our beloved Quamari and an incorrigible young man has lost his freedom.

No more of these senseless killings, things have to change. We need love and unity.

Sleep in Peace Quamari

So sad. Please accept and pass on my condolences to the entire family. Such a tragic and unnecessary loss of a young life, needlessly lost to reckless and wanton violence. If I can assist in any way then Id be honoured to do so. May Quamari rest in peace.
