    Weʼve raised £27,500 to Archie Ward's Funeral Contribution

    Ramsgate, Kent, United Kingdom
    Funded on Friday, 21st July 2017

    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.

    Story

    Welcome to our Crowdfunding page, which is a dedicated fundraising effort to help a local family.

    Michael ‘Archie’ Ward was known and loved by many within the Thanet community and this was a result of a number of his underlying characteristics.  Whilst a very keen and formidable sportsman he had an ability to light up the room and welcome everyone within.  Often spoken as a true gentleman.

    His charming personality and very cheeky grin always meant people were pleased to see ‘our Arch’ and none more so then his adoring children who he has always doted on.  Archie was often seen with his ‘clan’ and enjoyed nothing more than spending time with them providing the fun and love they craved.

    However, on fathers day the opportunity for the children to see their father was tragically taken away.  The sadness from the children and the local community couldn’t be more apparent through social media, flowers laid and too many tears shed. 

    These tragic circumstances have led to friends suggesting help for Archie and the family he leaves behind.  As you would imagine there are a number of costs and primarily a funeral.

    It is incredible that one man could have fulfilled so many people’s lives by just being ‘Archie.’

    During this very difficult time your kindness and goodwill can only help Archie and his family.  Whilst we cannot take away the emotional burden I am hopeful we can soften the financial one. To this extent, we welcome contributions and thank you in advance for your help in this time of need.

    Thank you all x
