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.
Bob was a good man in life, although a little hot headed and disorganised (Bob the bag man when it came to filing) he had everyone's interest ahead of his own. He lived for his work and his family and his death has hit his family both in business and pleasure hard as it was not his time to go. His heart gave up suddenly having fought illness for over 20 years. His youngest daughter and grandson found him in his favourite chair and did all they could to save him. His daughters and grandson have since found out he left zero provisions for funeral costs and has unleashed a lot of extra burden which now falls in their remit after his death (which will not necessarily die with him). His family are trying to raise funds to allow him to have a dignified funeral. They are trying to raise "a quarter" of the known amount needed so far in order for a funeral to take place so those around him can say goodbye. A quarter of the amount of £5000 is a lot to raise and the family appreciate any support at this difficult time as this was not the usual route to take in these circumstances. Thank you.
