    Weʼve raised £7,190 to Support an amazing family who have tragically lost their Dad/Husband the week before Christmas leaving them financially vulnerable.RIP Gary

    Funded on Sunday, 16th April 2023

    Don't have time to donate right now?



    Tragically and unexpectedly on Wednesday 14th December Lynsey, Gary's wife received the phone call that no wife or mother ever wants to receive, her beloved husband and father to her two young children had suddenly passed away at work.

    Gary was one of the most gentle and kindest souls you could ever meet who cherished his family and would have moved heaven and earth for them. Gary was a very proud husband to Lynsey and dad to Millie and Erith. Like with most families Gary was the bread winner as Lynsey was a mum to two young children.

    The family have now found themselves in the most horrendous of circumstances, not only have they got to come to terms with losing their HERO, they also face the reality of potentially losing their home - the home that holds the most cherished memories of their beloved Gary, as like many families Gary had no life insurance and the company he worked for had no death in service payment. At the age of 47 you would never expect him to go out the door never to return.

    Gary was a proud helper at LSH rugby union where he organised all the fixtures and a proud supporter of Blackbrook Royals the two teams that his son Erith plays for. Gary loved watching his son play and we are convinced he will continue to do so from the heavens above. (Rainbows 🌈will be shining on match days).

    We are raising funds to try and support his family to have some financial security to help them pay for his funeral and give him the service he deserves; however, the most important reason is to prevent them losing their home whilst Lynsey has the time to grieve her husband and support her devastated children. We want her to be able to do that and have the time to grieve without having the financial worry that she is facing at present.

    Please, please, please find it in your heart to support this lovely family. They will miss Gary every day of their lives and their hearts will be broken forever but this support will go a long way in giving them a small piece of mind at this tragic time.

    The rugby family thank each and everyone of you for your donations however big or small. xxxxxx
