    Weʼve raised £12,740 to Support the family of Cornelius Koundouris

    Funded on Saturday, 9th September 2023

    Story

    Cornelius Koundouris lived in the shadow of death ever since he was born. He had a chronic heart condition that required lifesaving surgery as an infant. Against all the odds he survived major heart surgeries, a pacemaker, and survived clinical death twice when his heart stopped beating. But on Friday 9th September he was taken from us for good. He was only 38.

    Cornelius died very suddenly in the arms of his partner Celyn and in front of his daughter Clio. They were visiting Syros for a family wedding. Celyn is currently alone with her baby in Greece, faced with paperwork and the costs of repatriating his body back to the UK, and organising a funeral for him. Clio was due to celebrate her first birthday in a few weeks and now they will have to say goodbye to her Daddy instead.

    Cornelius and Celyn loved each other, joyfully, and supported each other through his medical emergencies and several family tragedies. They were an inseparable couple, even working together in the same job, bringing their baby to work alongside them. Now Celyn is left with the unthinkable prospect of raising her child alone.

    All the money raised will go directly to Celyn and Clio, to be able to say goodbye and start again. Now is the time to donate, to show Celyn and Clio they are not alone, and to soften, if we can, this unspeakable tragedy. Thank you with all our hearts, from their friends.

      We set an initial target of 5000, and quickly surpassed that. Now we've raised 10000 in just a few days. Testament to how loved Cornelius, Celyn and Clio are, and to what a kind community surrounds them. We'll leave the page open to see if anyone else wants to donate, and why not? Now the real hard work begins for Celyn. Please keep your messages of support coming over the next weeks, months and years. Keep this family going with your love!

      I was so sad to read this heartbreaking story in my neighbourhood magazine. Sending love to Celyn & Clio at this very hard time.
