    Story

    Like me you are a friend of Barry and Ingrid. Barry was my Best man and my wife Rebecca has been friends with Ingrid, since they, were kids.I know we all feel we can offer something more than emmotional support. I know you are up to speed with the updates regarding Caitlin and of course Barry and Ingrid. At present Barry and Ingrid are being accommodated at Mc Donald’s house. However when Caitlin moves to The Royal Brompton, no equivalent facilities exist. I think and I hope you agree, that Barry and Ingrid have enough on their plate to worry about, than a)finding someone to stay b) managing the costs involved. I am therefore playing with the idea of crowdfunding, amongst friends and family, funds to help support them whilst staying in London. I am hoping this is something you would consider contributing to. Any money raised would go directly to supporting them in London in the short term. Further if there is an excess at the end of this journey, it may go some way to allow them to get away for a weekend as a family. I understand if you would make a more personal contribution. Please let me know either way. For obvious reasons I would appreciate if you would keep this hush hush from them. Kind Regards Bob

      Thank you all so very much for your kind generosity. As you all know the specialists have now come up with a plan to improve Caitlin’s condition. This being surgery and the placement of a ‘pacemaker’. Rebecca visited Barry, Ingrid and Caitlin at Hospital and spirits were high. Both Barry and Ingrid were taken aback by the generosity and some tears were shed. The temporary room Barry and Ingrid have been availed is not great, but it’s close. Where they want to be. However with your generosity they now have options. Thank you all so much

      Thank you all for your kind support. I am taken aback by the quick and kind generosity of you all. Some of you may not that I have raised the funding target to £2000. That was in anticipation of the funds being raised so far measured against the number of friends who have been approach re this cause. Over 200 friends, be it FACEBOOK or otherwise have been contacted. However only 21 have contributed thus far. However I am confident that with time further donations will start coming in.
