Weʼre raising £2,000 to honour Darren's memory.
- London, UK
- 0 minutes to go
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This charming man left us way way too early on Friday 11th May after fighting a long and incredibly brave battle against throat cancer. Darren leaves behind 3 gorgeous girls, one he was married to and 2 little ones they had together.
The funds raised on this page will be used towards a commemorative tree to be planted on their street, Olive Rd and any left over funds will be passed on to Jen, Grace and Eliza to use as they please... It could be an emergency pot for rainy days where he won't be there to hold the umbrella to protect them, a nest egg for the girls future, a contribution towards the trip of a lifetime he would have loved to take them on, going down memory lane in Oz and many other places he loved, a lifetime supply of magazine, books, records and gig tickets he would have taken them to, yearly Christmas coats (everyone needs a new Christmas coat, right?) or just for them to decide to donate the money to their charity of choice in his name.
Now dig deep. It is a good cause for a good man. Just think about the money you'll save buying drinks or keeping up with whatever shenanigans he was going to drag you into and stick it in here.
Alternatively or additionally (the cheek), you can donate directly to their chosen charities via these links:
Goodbye Poppet. Bless you. x

We didn't know Darren but live on Olive Road and have become aware of his passing in recent weeks. We just wanted you to know our thoughts are with you.

I will gladly come and hug that tree as soon as I'm over again. It's a beautiful symbol for a beautiful soul, he will live on forever in our hearts and the universe. Wishing you peace. Much love, Shaz
