Much loved Welwyn Garden City resident Jennifer Buck passed away sadly this summer aged 78. As a long standing supporter of DEMAND’s work to transform the lives of people living with disabilities, she requested donations from friends and family be given in memoriam to the charity close to her heart. Clearly a well loved member of the community, Jennifer’s family and friends responded magnificently and collected over £900 in support of DEMAND.
Some weeks later, DEMAND were contacted by Emma Harrison, teacher and choir master at Welwyn St. Mary’s Primary School. A friend of the late Mrs. Buck and her husband David, Emma had arranged for a portion of the proceeds from the school’s Summer Concert to be donated to us.
With performances from the St Mary’s Community Choir, the School Choir and the Chamber Choir, the concert was a great success as usual. The event raised £55 which, along with the £912.12 donated in Jenny’s memory will go a long way towards helping someone in the community in need of DEMAND’s invaluable custom design and manufacture service.
We are grateful to everyone who donated at the Welwyn St. Mary’s Summer Concert, and also to Jenny’s friends & family for their kind and generous support.

We are extremely grateful for the contributions made by Jenny Buck during her life and for all of the support shown in her memory. Asking for donations in memoriam at Jenny’s funeral has meant that many more people have learnt about our invaluable work. The fact that the donations have kept on growing through Emma Harrison at Welwyn St Mary’s Choir is a testament to David’s incredible efforts to spread the word of our work to help people living with disabilities, and for that we are most appreciative!
