£3,700raised of £17,818 target by 77 supporters

Weʼre raising £17,818 to help the family of Alex Bogges who died tragically in a road accident on the 17th August 2018

Leicester, UK

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 charity.

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


Superlatives are always brandished about when referring to the loss of a friend.

With Alex though, there are almost none which do him true justice.

It’s no overstatement to say that his charisma, intelligence, charm and wit lit up the lives of all who knew him, not to mention the fact that he was a brilliant Engineer and dedicated father.

His loss will be most sorely felt by his family while the others who knew him well will miss him forever.

This page is to dedicate memories to Alex and to create a fund to help his wife and children move forward with their lives.

Please share your memories and stories of Alex.

Note: A financial target was mandatory so the date of death was chosen. The preference would have been to leave this blank.

    Alex was one of the most enthusiastic, warm and intelligent chaps you could ever want to meet. His drive & desire to share his knowledge rubbed off on everyone who met him. To our good friend.

    We met the Bogges family when they relocated to the USA. We'll remember Alex as 'Alex the Adventurer', always off exploring a new place; then graduating to Iron Man! We are so sorry for your loss.

    I am at a loss for words right now. Alex was such a kind, caring, creative, interesting and funny guy. My heart goes out to the Bogges family for the sudden and tragic loss of such a great man.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I was just a mountain biking acquaintance of his from the Chicagoland area. I didn't know him very well but I always knew that Alex was a good man.
