A bench in memory of a cherished mother will be placed in the Remembrance Garden of St Augustine’s Church in Kilburn Park Road.
Frank Mbaakanyi, 35, bought the bench to mark the fifth anniversary of the death of his mother, Mable Bakulu Mbaakaanyi, who was a high ranking government official in Botswana.
“My mother passed away in September 2008,” explained Mr Mbaakanyi who lives in Notting Hill.
“This all stems from me. I never really did anything for my mum and she touched a lot of people.”
The bench has been blessed by Father Colin Amos.
