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.
Derek, Des, Dek, Dad,
However you knew him, you couldn't fail to love him.
The tributes that have poured in following his very sad and sudden passing are testament to the great man that he was.
As well as the beautiful words that have been written about him, many of his friends have been in touch with us, asking how they can donate in a way that benefits Charlotte and their boys. It has been heartbreakingly mind-blowing.
Everyone wants to do something to help. You've already cooked meals, bought shopping, made phone-calls, sat with Charlotte and offered such comfort but you all still wish to do more and we cannot thank you all enough as her family.
So, driven by the number of requests to help out financially, we have created this page.
Rest in Peace Our Favourite Best Boy. We will make sure they are looked after.
Thank you, to all of you, for everything you have done so far and everything yet to come.
The family of Charlotte, Joseph, Samuel and Gabriel Bennett

So many of you have mentioned fundraising to ensure that Charlotte is able to provide for her boys in the way that her incredibly hard-working Dek did. This will hopefully help pay for some of the nice things in life that he used to spoil them with. They wanted for nothing.
