Weʼve raised £3,165 to help Eton Manor RFC & volunteers with materials for Sue Reynolds' memorial fund to provide her family with urgent accommodation.
- Funded on Tuesday, 28th May 2019
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.
Sue, our beloved bar manager at Eton Manor Rugby Club sadly passed away after a short illness on Sunday 20th January. Sue leaves behind her four children, with her youngest children still living with her at the time of her death. Her daughter, Bianca has taken on legal guardianship of her younger brothers but is desperately short of room for them to live with her.
A number of club members have volunteered to help build two new rooms at her house but we desperately need help with raising funds for the building materials required.
The club volunteers are giving their time for free, but the cost of materials is more than the club can raise alone. Sue has served the families of Wanstead at our club for 15 years, she was a tireless employee and volunteer. She also helped the community with functions held at the Eton Manor club house, local school rugby events, such as the Christchurch school rugby games, school open days, special needs fun days and family parties and funerals.
We are also appealing to local building firms to help with supplies they may have left over from projects. Any any local tradesmen who could spare some time to help with the build would be appreciated as well. The build is in Chelmsford but we can collect materials locally.
If you can help with left over materials or have some time to support a trade, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you in touch with lead build volunteers.
Please donate to to help Bianca to keep her family together.
Thank you in advance for all your generosity and support.
