DJ raises funds for memorial bench for brother who died off Shoreham Beach

A DJ has launched a fundraiser for a memorial after his brother was found dead on the beach.

Now his younger brother Mike Wall, a DJ and producer named Wax Worx, is raising funds for a memorial bench in his honor.

Mike, 45, said: “Tim always wanted to have a good time but he also always went out of his way to make sure everyone else was having as much fun as he was.”

Tim was ten years older and became his father figure when they lost their father in 1994.

During that year they traveled the world together, starting in New Zealand and Australia, later working together in resorts in Andorra and Mallorca, Tim as tour guide and Mike as DJ.

When they returned to the UK they were both social workers in residential homes and later worked together for Asphaleia, an organization for young people. Mike was a youth mentor and Tim was a relief worker with unaccompanied minor asylum seekers.

Later, Tim traveled more and returned to work as a representative in Greece and Austria, years that he would later describe as the best of his life.

When he returned to the UK he worked for West Sussex County Council as a carer for the care of vulnerable young adults.

Mike, who lives in Henfield, said: “Tim was loved by his family, he was well known and well loved in the area.

“He was adored by the young people he supported and worked with, many of whom looked to him as a surrogate father.”

Mike believes that many people have not been able to grieve properly for Tim and would therefore like to have a memorial bench for him at Adur Recreation Ground in Shoreham.

Here he often walked his dog Charlie and called it his “safe place”.

Mike said, “Tim would have wanted that, and he would have wanted this to be a place, especially for men, to come and meet a friend and be open about their issues.”

The bank will cost around £1,300 and Mike wants to raise £1,000. People can donate to the fundraiser at or contact Mike at DJ raises funds for memorial bench for brother who died off Shoreham Beach
