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.
My niece, Pamela Smith, aged only 48 has recently passed away less than 9 weeks after her diagnosis of a very aggressive cancer in 5 places including the brain. This has been a major shock to the whole of her family including her 3 younger sisters and her two daughters.
Taken away far too young, but what is it that they say "only the good die young". This is so true of Pamela she was a very kind warm person.
Her parents who are pensioners now but having worked all their adult lives are struggling to give Pamela the most basic of funerals. The little savings they have will now have to go on the funeral.
The date of the funeral is 4th December 2018 and the total cost was a little over £3200.
Pamela leaves behind 2 children aged 22 and 11, the youngest of which also lost her father near to Christmas 7 years ago and is facing her first Christmas as an orphan.
That is why I am sending out this impassioned plea for help with the costs.
If anyone can make a donation, no matter how small the whole family will be eternally grateful.
Thanking you all in advance.
The Smith Family
