Raising funds for a permanent memorial to the legendary Led Zeppelin drummer in his home town of Redditch, Worcestershire
Thank you for visiting our website.
The aim of the John Bonham Memorial Fund is to raise an initial £50,000 for the design and installation of a fitting permanent memorial in Redditch town centre, the birthplace of the legendary drummer from Led Zeppelin.
The preferred location for the memorial is on the Church Green, behind St Stephen's church, next to the Bandstand and Bartleet Fountain, on land owned by Redditch Borough Council.
Any additional monies raised will be used to cover future maintenance costs.
Donations can be made securely online through our GoldenGiving.com page (click on tab below). Or you can pledge via our crowdfunding page (click on box opposite)
"John played the drums like someone who didn't know what was going to happen next - like he was teetering on the edge of a cliff. No one has come close to that since, and I don't think anybody ever will. I think he will forever be the greatest drummer of all time." Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters
Update May 2016
We're nearly there!
We've received a pledge from someone who, at this stage at least, wishes to remain anonymous.
This means that we're now able to move to the design and planning application stage.
We still need to keep on rising money for installation and ongoing maintainance costs when sited., but we are aiming to have a permanent memorial in place by 31st May 2017 - John's 69th Birthday.
More to follow.
