    Story

    Jayne brought her husband Andy to work on the morning of Wednesday, 18th July. Little did she know when she said goodbye that would be the last time she saw him. At 11.22am Andy was tragically killed when the lorry that he was driving ran into the back of the one in front of him on the A1. As yet, we don't know why. He was 57 years old.

    Andy and his family have been working hard to renovated an old public house to create a family home as well as a base for their new Wedding and Event Services business. Every penny they had went into repairing the property where they live and work. Progress has been slow. The ground floor has been transformed into a showroom, storage rooms and office but work is yet to start on their living accommodation. There is no kitchen as such and the floors need strengthening before any kind of restoration can begin. Jayne lives amongst this, dreaming of the day her house will be clean, functional and pretty like her last home.

    Two years ago Jayne herself almost died from a brain haemorrhage. Her recovery is on going and has been slow. She still suffers with memory problems and is unable to use her right hand at all, both preventing her from working herself. Money has been tight and subsequently the couple cancelled all of their insurance policies to help make ends meet.

    Her priority now is being able to give her husband a decent send off. The family have been informed the funeral costs will be in the region of £4,000

    Please help us raise some money to give Jayne the peace of mind of knowing that she can bring her husband back to his family in Walsall and have a proper funeral and allow him to rest in peace.
