    Story

    This fundraising page is for our father,husband and grandfather who sadly passed away on Sunday 23rd October.
    He is stuck in France and we need help to bring him home, any amount of money would be appreciated.
    Dad had two advanced stage 4 primary cancers, and one of his last wishes was to have a last family holiday on a cruise ship, so we scrimped and saved and made sure he was fit to travel with his consultant and nurses, but sadly on Thurs 20th October he fell ill and had to be taken to the local hospital the next day where he never woke up again.
    We have already had to find nearly £1,000 for bills such as the ambulance and 20% hospital fees or they would not release his body. but now we need to find another £2,000 for the cruise ships doctor and another £2,000 for the excess on the holiday insurance and that's if they will take on his policy, if not it could be as much as £50,000 for repatriation.
    then we have the horrible job of funeral arrangements when we get home from France.
    We are now trying to raise money in hopes that we can bring him home to have a funeral and where we can all say goodbye as a family. Any donation is massively appreciated - thank you and kind regards from the Hall and Roberts family x

      Would like to say thank you to everyone who has donated, it means the world that people can be so kind.... we need one more push as the insurance company is paying BUT not all of it and we are £2000 short to pay back the repatriation money that was lent to us.

      Just to let everyone know that this story was in the paper but they did not get everything correct which is so frustrating such as saying we were on a luxury cruise ship in the south of France, we was not we were on a last family holiday for one week in northern France, they also said my name is Susan which as you can see it's not, yes we did tell the insurance company about his terminal cancer and agreed on an excess of £2,000. And what they didn't say was that he was told by the dwp to go to work and stopped his money for 18 months....

      The insurance company is re- assessing the claim, they have said that they will pay part of his repatriation of £1,875 even though the cost of it is £3,875 so there is a difference of £2,000 plus the cruise ships doctor's bill of £2,000. Which has been paid for by an anonymous person as a loan that has to be paid back or dad would have been left in a morgue in France. ...
