raised of £500 target by 72 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,965 to support & thank the amazing staff at Viking Day Unit for Fred Unwin. Instead of flowers we would prefer donations to this wonderful cause.

    Funded on Thursday, 27th June 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Our darling Freddie died on the 25th February after a two-year battle with cancer. Dad befriended the entire team at Viking Day Unit, where he felt at ease during a very difficult time. The staff cared for him with such love, compassion and kindness – we will be forever grateful and Viking will hold a very special place in our hearts.

    If possible, we would also like to raise enough money to purchase a bench to be situated along the beautiful Palm Bay seafront; providing a place for family & friends to come and join Fred, ‘The Magic Man’, to partake in one of his favourite past-times, ‘people watching’ and reflect on many a happy memory of time spent with such a wonderful, witty, clever, courageous, fun-loving, but most of all…family man.

    We invite you to join us in a celebration of Fred’s life at a service to be held on Tuesday 12th March at 1pm - Thanet Crematorium, CT9 4LY

      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!

      Dad befriended the entire team at The Viking Day Unit, where he felt at ease during a very difficult time. We also hope to raise enough money for a bench so friends can join Fred to people watch and enjoy the beautiful views that he loved.
