£709raised of £250 target by 44 supporters

    Weʼve raised £709 to Buy 3 Gifts for the children of Conor Morgan (45), a truck driver who died in Blantyre in Apr 17 & to donate to Light House Charity.

    Funded on Friday, 26th May 2017

    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

    Conor Morgan was a 45-year-old man working away from home at High Blantyre, South Lanarkshire when he lost his life in a construction accident on site on Wednesday 19th April 2017.

    He left behind a family with 3 children. This campaign aims to raise funds to buy something for each of his 3 children to show Blantyre residents are thinking of them at this sad time.

    50% of funds raised will also be donated to the Light House Club, a charity for the families of construction workers injured or who have died on UK construction sites.

    Blantyre DOES care and our £1 for Conor Campaign hopes to show that. Please donate just £1 or as much as you wish to these great causes. Thank you. Fundraising ends 27th May 2017.

      Update from the Page owner

      A warm thank to the 44 people who donated to the campaign to raise funds in memory of Conor Morgan. The campaign ended raising an incredible £709 , which on instruction from the family is split equally between Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust and Light House Club. We've made the donation this morning, following Justgiving minor processing deduction. Blantyre Telegraph retained or deducted nothing at all. Amazing support showing Blantyre cares. Once again we offer our sincere sympathies to Conor's family. He will be missed by many.

      Shirleen (Conor's wife) has informed Regen (Conor's Employer) to pass on to us that she would like to donate the monies raised to the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust http://kevinbellrepatriationtrust.com/ as they were extremely helpful and supportive in getting the PM moved to an earlier date and in turn getting Conor home to his family sooner than had been previously expected. We trust you will find that equally acceptable.

      Thank you SO much to all the kind people who have donated so far! We've smashed the target already and still have the rest of May to go. We've been in touch with Conor's Employer to arrange for funds raised to be transferred to the family after the campaign ends. Everybody's donation will be greatly welcomed and is most appreciated. We're sure already we'll be able to buy Conor's children something decent and meaningful.
