Weʼve raised £1,195 to help give Martin the send off he deserves.
- Luton, UK
- Funded on Tuesday, 6th November 2018
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.
2 years ago we did a benefit gig and set up a Just Giving page to help Martin after he had a major operation and needed to set up a new home. Sadly with his passing we find ourselves once more arranging a benefit gig and fundraising - this time to help pay for the type of funeral he deserves.
Martins funeral is taking place at The Vale in Luton on Tuesday 16th October at 11am. Whilst we've kept things simple and dignified (he'd be hollering - waste of money stick me in a bin bag!' we know) the cost is still around £3500.
The benefit gig is on 6th October at George II, Luton. Please support this and come on down if you are able and anything you can help out with will be much appreciated. There will be music, memories and tears...oh and hopefully a raffle!
Cerberus will be playing with multiple line ups and a few other bands (TBC) will be playing too. https://www.facebook.com/events/508827982922456/
We understand not everyone is able to make the gig and that some friends would like to donate online, which has lead us to the setting up of this page. Any little something you feel able to give will help in saying farewell to this lovely man who was a friend to all.
Thank you, and our love to you at this very sad time for all of us; his friends and family.
Edited 30/9 to add To EVERYONE who has donated. THANK YOU! We've hit our original target of £1000 towards the funeral costs. We're not going to raise the target but if anyone else wants to contribute then please do. Again we're amazed at your generosity. We love you all!
