£895raised of £2,000 target by 40 supporters

    Weʼve raised £895 to show support to two young men and their sister who have recently lost their mother in a tragic turn of events on New Years Eve.

    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.


    After a tragic turn of events on New Year's Eve 2017, two young local men and their sister have been devastated to lose their mother. I don't want to focus on the events of that night as I'm sure, for the family's sake, it doesn't need repeating again however......

    The boys, who both lived with their mother, are only 19 and 22 years old but now face the prospect of having to support themselves financially as well as having to go through this incomprehensible grief.

    I am asking the local community to help show support to these boys and their sister in their time of need. The boys are well known locally to Stoke Prior and Bromsgrove and have always been such a delight to anyone who has met them. Their sister does not live in this country but no doubt has been just as heartbroken as the boys.

    This page has been set up to assist the children of Melanie Clark in trying to slowly and gradually come to terms with what has happened and eventually rebuild their lives after this tragedy and all donations will be given to the three children. If you can spare even just a pound for this cause, please do so as every little will help. Alternatively, there is also a collection box available to donate into at the local shop on Ryefields Road, Stoke Prior.

    Whilst we will all realise that no amount of money can take away the family's pain and grief, we hope that it may at least show that we are all here for them and are willing to lend support in any way we can.

      Money won’t replace your Mum but I hope it helps to take away some of the anxiety for the future.
