    Weʼve raised £2,545 to To fund a memorial for Brian 'Scottish' Mays

    Funded on Monday, 3rd June 2019

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Sadly, Brian 'Scottish' Mays passed away on the Friday 18th January at Broomfield hospital. He had developed pneumonia after having a fall the day before. Brian had been battling cancer for sometime previously and had recently been given the 'all clear'. I can only assume that his immune system was low due to the cancer treatment. Brian had worked on a self employed basis but could not work during his treatment and sadly Brian had no estate to pay for a private funeral, instead he is to have a paupers funeral. This crowdfunding page was set-up to raise funds for a memorial to Brian so that his passing did not go 'unmarked'. Amazingly, the response has been so positive that we are now hoping to instead, fund Brian with a modest private cremation so that he can have the service he deserves.

    Many thanks for your support,
