£5,414raised of £4,000 target by 109 supporters

    Weʼve raised £5,414 to Help ease the financial strain on Andrew and his family during this difficult time.

    Funded on Monday, 14th January 2019

    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.


    By now you may have heard that our Andrew van Gortel has been poorly for a little while now. Sadly, Andrew has Neuro endocrine cancer which has metastasised to his lymphatic system and bones.

    There is unfortunatley no cure but he is having pallative chemotherapy to relieve some pain.

    We all know he doesn’t ever like to make a fuss or be centre of attention, yet everyone around him thinks the world of him and will want to be there for support and love to both him and Lou at this difficult time.

    Andrew has been a NowWhatclub member for over 18 months, a regular and positive contributor to the live events and even made history at the first ever cards on the table.

    He has been a loyal member of 4Networking for many years, only stepping down from his role as Area Leader for Somerset when he fell ill.

    On top of this, Andrew continues to a great friend to so many of us, ever humble, ever kind and one of the most honest, genuine, caring and funny person you’ll ever know.

    As you can understand this is a very sad time for Andrew, Louise and their family, but it is also a very compounded worrying time at Christmas for them financially and so we wanted to give people the chance to help them, in whatever way they can.

    All donations big or small will make a huge difference so please do donate if you can.

    We are family and we are here for you both.
