    Weʼve raised £100 to remember Tom White and raise funds for Ballater Victoria Week

    Ballater, Aberdeenshire, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 9th July 2017

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Tom White was an integral part of Ballater Victoria Week's Ghost Tours for several years. Sadly, he died suddenly on June 4th.
    He had arranged costumes, props, light and sounds, and generally scared the bejeezus out of countless intrepid tour-goers.
    Tom had announced that this was to be his last year as Chief Ghost and his wife Maureen said he had been looking forward to reprising the role one last time. With the help of volunteers who loved working with Tom, we intend to run the tours this year in his memory.
    A tremendous character, Tom's input to BVW and the Ghost Tours will be greatly missed.
    There will be a service at Baldarroch Crematorium, Crathes, at 1pm on Monday June 12th, with donations to BVW, or you can donate here.
    Ballater Victoria Week is an 10-day series of village community events which runs on Royal Deeside, Scotland every August, with something for everyone.
    With Maureen's guidance, we will ensure that any monies raised will benefit a cause within that which fully befits Tom's memory.
    Thank you.
    Cat Houston and Ade Scripps, for the Ballater Victoria Week family

        Even though I am a committee member of BVW last year was the first time I had done a Ghost Tour, really enjoyed it, thanks for all the years you gave us Tom x

        Dear Maureen, Mr White was my boss after I returned from missions. I will always remember him as one of the most round and down to earth people I've met.

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
