Memorial bench for Hannah

28 November 2012

Hannah Coan, 18, died after being hit by a car in DartfordA bench in memory of teenager Hannah Coan has been placed in Central Park.

The teenager and former Wilmington Academy pupil died on September 12 after being struck by a car just yards from her Dartford home in North Street.

Shortly after her death, her mum Sharon began fundraising to help pay for a headstone for Hannah as well as the bench and a donation to King’s College Hospital where she was treated for her injuries.

The group raised more than £4,000.

Organiser Amanda Churchman, of East Hill, Dartford said: “We can’t put into words how amazed and grateful we are to you all.

“Without all of your love, thoughts and generosity Sharon and I could not have achieved all the things Sharon wanted to do for her beloved daughter, so one last thing remains to be said - sleep well Hannah Louise Coan, forever in our hearts and thoughts.”
