The Westerling Family is crowdfunding

raised of £5,000 target by 199 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to support the charities Ian held dear, in his memory


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.


In loving memory of a devoted father, adoring husband, cherished brother, loyal friend, respected property agent, long-suffering Hammer (#COYI) and all round bloomin' good bloke.

Ian cared enormously, about everybody. Charitable giving was important to him and he supported a large number of very worthy causes, both publicly and privately. We would like to help the following now, on his behalf, one last time:

AIR AMBULANCE (Thames Valley) which attended when Ian fell ill and is funded entirely by charitable donations

BOBBY MOORE FUND (CRUK) in memory of one of Ian's West Ham idols (who passed away at the same age as Ian)

CENTRE POINT (homeless charity) which Ian raised money for last year by sleeping rough for a night

SHAW TRUST (Maidenhead) which helps users of one of our local food banks with other needs (school uniforms, gifts for children who would otherwise not receive one, support for adults to find work, etc)

CHILDREN WITH CANCER, who Ian ran the London marathon for in 2017

BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION, which raises money to research cures and treatments for heart disease

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness and generosity. Your contribution will pay fitting tribute to Ian's selflessness, compassion and drive to help others, and he would be enormously humbled by your generosity and support.

With love and great thanks from us all,

The Westerling Family. xxxxx

    Dear Cat and family. My heart felt condolences and love go to you all. I didn't know Ian, though if he is anything like you Cat, he was a super special man who is clearly going to be missed by so many
