    Weʼve raised £4,015 to help fund our Dad’s funeral.

    Funded on Tuesday, 24th September 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Hi, thank you for visiting our Just Giving Page. Our name’s are Ben and Dani. We are 22 and 24 years old. On May 6th 2019, our Dad, Jeff Cobden, had a sudden brain aneurysm, leaving him in a coma and unresponsive. Although the surgeons, doctors and nurses at Addenbrookes did everything in their power to save him, we had to make the heartbreaking decision to take him off of the ventilator on May 19th. He passed away later that afternoon. Our Dad was 56 years old.

    Unfortunately, Dad had no life insurance, no life savings and a very limited amount of assets; leaving us to figure out a way of paying for his funeral. So far, our only option is to take out a bank loan, meaning in the years to come we will still be making monthly payments for the sake of burying our Dad. We wouldn’t ask for help if we weren’t desperate, but we need to put our pride aside and try to give him the best send off we can.

    If anybody had anything spare that they would be willing to donate to help us, we would be eternally grateful.

    Thank you so much for reading.

    Ben and Dani.

        We grew up together. Same village same school. Kinship takes many forms.

      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!
