Weʼve raised £1,300 to Help a much treasured and long serving colleague in their hour of need
- Funded on Wednesday, 1st 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 nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
A very close, long serving, and much loved colleague of ours has recently had their life turned upside down and changed beyond recognition due to an unexpected tragedy in the family.
After already suffering through one close family member falling seriously ill, their spouse has had a severe stroke, with loss of memory and other brain functions. While there have been very mild improvements, such as memory recovery, these have often lasted no longer than 24 hours.
With the future uncertain and the possibility that they may now not only be a carer for their spouse, but also the main bread winner in the house, financial worries will be weighing down heavily on top of the emotional.
While we can sadly do very little for the latter we would at least like to help alleviate the former as much as we can.
I know it is slightly unorthodox not to reveal the identity of the person in question but we felt that as they are unaware of this campaign we should respect their right to privacy and just hope this does not have too detrimental an effect on the amount raised. I'm sure many, if not most of you know who I am referring to.
Their short absence so far has already been missed by many, and felt by all.
I appreciate you taking the time to read this and we are extremely grateful for any amount you can contribute.
