Jake’s Memorial Bench

Family and friends as well as Jake’s Form Tutor Mrs Dodsworth and local charity representative Mr Ken Finnis (from the charity Children With Life Threatening Illnesses who kindly funded the memorial) gathered for the unveiling of a bench bought to commemorate the life of Jake Elphick-Cox.

The unveiling of this lasting memorial, located to the right of our main reception entrance,  is an important part of marking the impact that Jake had on his family and friends in his all too short a life.

Along with the Jake Elphick-Cox Football trophy, which will be presented every year following a charity football tournament, this new bench will remind all who pass it each day of Jake and what his memory means to us here at Thomas Aveling School.
