A memorial garden to remember Harry Zambon will open at Jersey College for Girls today.

The 25-year-old died from brain cancer last year after raising more than £12,000 for the Jersey Brain Tumour Charity. His family says they wanted to honour him by building a garden where he studied, so "existing and future students have an outdoor quiet place to enjoy and have times of reflection".More than £11,000 was raised through a Crowd Funding page - exceeding the target of £10,000.

Having a peaceful outdoor space on the College campus will allow students an appropriate and suitable place to take some time out for thinking and reflection away from the busy College environment.
