    Don't have time to donate right now?


    This page is in memory of the comedian Gareth Richards; and is to raise money for a trust fund for his two sons aged 11 and 13. Gareth passed away on Friday 7th April (Good Friday) at 6.30pm. He was in a terrible car accident on Monday 27th March at 11.30pm and sustained serious brain injuries which he was unable to survive. He was so loved by so many people and will be greatly missed but we know he is now at peace. He loved the boys so much and was very proud of them. He did the best bedtime stories and loved flying kites with them. Thank you all for your support and kindness. Mirth Control will announce a fundraising event in due course.

        May his memory live on in laughter. A sad loss gone far too early.

        So very sad. I’ll always remember Brexit and the bear in the library. Thank you for the belly laughs.

      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.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
