Weʼve raised £210 to Help fund the funeral of my work colleague who had no family.
- Funded on Saturday, 11th August 2018
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.
So I posted a while back about losing a dear friend and work colleague Chris Connairn. Flat earth theorist, philosopher, conspiracy theorist, sarcastic little so and so etc. But mostly he had a heart of gold and all of the time in the world for anybody who needed it. He spent his life learning and gaining skills that all seemed to revolve around helping others. I know that not everybody knew him but if you did I’m sure you would have loved him! We, as a work unit were his family and he valued everybody he got to call a friend!
The reason I am posting this is because he didn’t have any other family besides work colleagues, and because of this his funeral costs are currently not covered. We gave him the best send off that suited him down to a tee. So I’m asking, and I understand not everybody can help, but if you can spare a couple of pounds to help towards the cost of this amazing mans funeral then it would be massively appreciated!
P.S a few of us are going to be doing a sponsored 5K run as soon as the weather is a little better to also try to raise money so I will update with the details and date of that as soon as I have more info! So your donations will be taken as sponsors for this run as I understand some people may rather sponsor as opposed to donate!
Thank you everybody from our team and from Chris! Gone but forever in our hearts💕💕
