    Story

    Tragic Tram Accident To everyone who may not yet have heard the news, my nephews Carlos and Callum, lost their father, Carlos Correa Palacio following the tragic tram accident on Tuesday 11th September. It has came as a great shock to all who knew him and loved him. Carlos was a 53 year old Loving Father and Husband, who had not long started what he said was his Dream Job working for Lothian Buses and unfortunately didn’t have any life insurance.

    We would like to show our support to my nephews and his wife by helping Callum & Carlos and Claudia raise funds towards Funeral Costs as we all know how much of financial burden a funeral is especially for 2 young boys and we would like to make things a little easier for them at such a sad and difficult time.

    If you would like to donate, just click on the donate button and donate whatever you can. Any amount is greatly appreciated! If you are not able to donate don’t forget you can still leave messages and comments for the Family to read.

      ❤️❤️❤️❤️THANK YOU❤️❤️❤️❤️ I would personally like to thank everyone has has donated to the page to help with the funeral costs. It has been a great help to Claudia, Callum and Carlos. We reached the target of £2,500 but once fees are deducted the amount is around £2,350. We are trying raise funds to make the difference up so that we can donate the full £2,500 to Funeral Directors once money is released. The page is open until 12th October so if anyone would still like to donate it would be greatly appreciated.

      A week has passed since I started the fundraising page and I would just to say a Massive THANK YOU to you all. Initially I aimed at 2,000 hoping that the family would get some sort of Death in Service benefit but I believe that Carlos wasn’t long enough with the company to benefit. So my family are doing Raffles, Football Cards etc to help raise the funds. I would like to reach out once more to everyone to please keep sharing. We have 3 weeks left to raise funds and then the money will be released to Funeral Directors. Thank you 💔💔💔
