- Funded on Monday, 8th October 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.
Most of you know that Dean has got terminal bowel cancer which was diagnosed in January 2017, he was told that he had 3-5 months to live but 17 months later against the odds, he is still here. He has never bowed down to this horrendous illness as the warrior inside him will not allow this to happen.
Myself and many others over the years have grown to love Dean like a brother, he is selfless, loyal and a great role model for many.
I have sat down with Dean over the past month or so and discussed what will happen at the end and his wishes are to have his funeral his way, there are to be no arguments about where it is held, what colour he wants people to wear, etc. He also has a wish that his friends and family get together to celebrate his life with his ashes after cremation being put into an awesone firework display and set off at a location near the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
This Just Giving page is asking for £7,000. Breaking this down to pay for the funeral plan he has recently taken out costing £3,355, the Ashes into Fireworks costing in the region of £2,500, plus all other additional expenses.
I believe that he has enough friends and also people that know and love him from his impressive boxing career to ensure that WHEN the time comes, he will get the send off he deserves!
Thanking everybody in advance for their support.
Let‘s do this for Dean 👊🏼💪🏼🤛🏼🥊

About the fundraiser
I have known Dean since 2005, Natalie and I met him whilst on a night out in Bristol. Dean rented a room from us for just over a year and this was the start of a very close relationship, he became a my brother from another Mother. A genuinely loyal, loving and selfless man! ❤️❤️
