    “Death is simple. Life is messy. Give me life, the more complicated the better.” ― Tom Robbins

    In memory of David Burke, we will be following the traditions of an Islamic funeral, and asking people to donate to a few good causes instead of the ephemeral tribute of flowers...

    The funds raised will be split between three cancer and palliative care charities, which all meant a lot to him, directly or indirectly. The hope is that others can grab that last 20 years, and failing that, the peaceful, good and supported death that Dad was lucky to have.

      Thank you everyone for donating. The money has now been withdrawn and has been split between early diagnosis research with cancer research UK, and Macmillan, who provided hospice care for Dad. We have donated all of Dad’s ‘treasure’ to Nottingham Hospice so it felt right to split between the two rather than over three charities as stated in the description. Thank you all, Dad would have been so pleased. I can just imagine the grin :) Xx
