Weʼre raising £2,000 to To fund a memorial for Brian 'Scottish' Mays

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 charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


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,
