    Story

    Sadly as you are aware, Jon Paul passed away on Sunday after a long battle with cancer in Reunion Island. Thankfully the insurance company are going to pay the full costs to repatriate him back to Glasgow.

    We also find ourselves stuck in the middle of a civil strike on the island, no government buildings are open, shops are closed and buses are not running. Roads in and out of city’s are blocked by protesters, riots have broken out and buildings and cars are being set on fire. Because the town hall is closed, we have been unable to get the death certificate needed to allow the repatriation process to begin. Craig cannot leave the island until this paperwork is complete, and we’re expecting this to last until next week.

    The travel insurance company are not going to cover Craig whilst he is stuck on the Island, and after paying the final medical costs, now needs to find the money to pay for hotel cost and his flight home.

    We thank everyone who donated to try and get Jon Paul home, your generosity was amazing, but we still need to get Craig back, and we’re asking for people to support one last push.

    Thank you all in advance

      Craig is now back in Glasgow, arrived on Saturday. The situation on the island has not got any better, protests and road blocks are still in place. Because of this, I still haven’t been able to move Jon Paul to the funeral director on the island and start the repatriation process. Please continue to share this far and wide, as there is still outstanding bills for Craig to be paid, plus my own bills are now starting to rack up! I could be here for another week, unless the situation starts to calm down. Thank you all

      I have managed to get Craig a flight home with the current donations received. He will be back home around lunch time today. There is still outstanding hotels bills and a few more hospital costs to pay on his behalf. Due to the current situation on the island, we have been unable to move JP to the local funeral directors to start the repatriation process. I will be remaining on the island to complete all the required paperwork and get Jon Paul home to Scotland. Hopefully things start to calm down, and can get things in motion on Monday.
