    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 nonprofit.

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

    Story

    Dave died on Friday 4th December from complications of Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

    He adored Alice, who has Rett syndrome, profound & multiple disabilities and complex health care needs.

    He was an ardent supporter of the charity that runs her home enabling her to live the best and most independent life that she can.

    He would not want flowers that look beautiful, but die. So if you want to give something in his memory, he would love it if you are able to contribute towards something more long lasting that flowers that will bring joy to Alice and the young people that she lives with.

      Thank you to every person who has contributed in memory of Dave, I didnt want to put a target amount but the page makes you, so i went with 500 hoping it wasnt too much but you have exceeded it and blown it away. He would be so chuffed and have a little tear in his eye, big old softy. I will leave it open until after the funeral. Thank you xx

      Although I've not been in touch with Dave for many years, I feel proud to have known him and all he stood for and privileged to be a part of today. Bless you Claire, he will be a legend forever.
