    Story

    Gareth Roberts - To everyone that knew Gareth, he was a great friend and larger than life character. Sadly and tragically, Gareth was taken away from us recently, he lost his life at the age of 36 and will forever leave a hole in our hearts.

    Gareth was always one to make you laugh and had a wonderfully sarcastic side to him. He was an avid Liverpool FC fan and loved nothing more than getting together with his close group of friends to watch his favourite side play.

    Originally from Leyland, Gareth also spent time living and working in The Lake District. Recently he resided in Bratislava, Slovakia for several years before returning back to the UK in October 2017.

    Gareth will always be remembered as a loving brother, uncle and a great friend to many, no one will ever forget that smile.

    As Gareth was taken at such a young age, he had made no will or plans to cover funeral expenses. Whilst we have managed to raise around 50% of the costs, we are falling short of giving our wonderful friend the send off he deserves. We are looking to raise £2000 to cover the final expenses, therefore any donation, no matter how small, will be gratefully received.

    Gareth was also a much loved member of staff of The Sherwood Public House in Fulwood and the manageress of 'Team Sherwood' has already agreed to cover food costs for the wake in this difficult time. We think this is a wonderful gesture and we are all truly grateful.

    All monies raised will go directly to the family towards covering the funeral costs, any excess over this amount will be donated to a charity close to Gareth's families heart.

    Please dig deep guys, something good must come from this tragic loss of our beloved friend.

    Should you wish to donate in an alternative method, please contact Ben on 07544 668964 or Brian on 07515 126434.
