    Weʼve raised £1,000 to help fund funeral costs

    Funded on Wednesday, 19th December 2018

    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.


    Just weeks after we lost our step Brother Leigh, we have so sadly lost my biggest brother Alex. Words really don't come easy so i'll keep it short. Alex had been struggling to find happiness for quite some time and sadly, sometimes, he would turn to substance abuse as a form of escape. He lost his life from an overdose in early August. Although, we were desperate to help him in any way we could, he also struggled to allow people to do so. It is not officially known whether his loss was intentional but most of us feel it was not.

    His funeral will take place on 10th September (more details to come) and i cannot with a true conscience ask more of my friends and family to donate after you have been so generous with our brother Leigh's funeral just weeks before now. However, some people have expressed wanting to donate and so here is a place where you can do so and i will personally make sure that any funds, however small will go directly to helping my parents with the costs of the funeral.

    I will be saying a small piece at the service, but for now, my family and i are too numb to put our feelings into words so please forgive us. Please do, feel free to get in touch privately if you knew Alex or feel you need to know more.
