Joan Smithurst

The Joan Smithurst Fund

  • How would you describe them?

    "Our wonderful Mum. Although she had to face many struggles and challenges through life, she did so with gentle good humour but determination."

    From Martin Smithurst

  • What did they love most?

    "Beautiful things. Beautiful countryside - especially her native Northumberland. The company of friends and family."

    From Martin Smithurst

Mum helpfully left a note of her wishes after she died. She asked that only close family provide flowers and that other well-wishers should instead send donations if they wanted to NSPCC or Save the Children. For simplicity I thought I would just pick one for this online fund and plumped for NSPCC (however feel free to donate separately to Save the Children if you prefer). She was always moved to see vulnerable children suffering and powerless and was a long time supporter of this charity and other charities, even though she did not have very much to give.
