    Weʼve raised £26,138 to The Leigh Spencer Memorial Fund

    Funded on Friday, 12th March 2021

    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.


    Leigh was killed on Saturday the 6th February in a tragic accident aboard the fishing vessel he worked on. He leaves his wife Analiza and two young children, Theo and Issabella. We’ve started this page to raise money to cover Leigh‘s funeral arrangements, and also to provide for Analiza and the children now that their husband and father is no longer there for them.

    If you knew Leigh, then you’ll understand how devastated we all are at his loss. His smile would light up a room, and he was the instigater of much meriment. Joy and generosity are words that spring to mind when we think of him.

    ’Spanner’ Spencer. Grieving father.

      Now that the date for Leigh’s funeral has been set, I will be closing this page in the next few days. The family has been truly overwhelmed by your support. Nothing will replace Leigh, but I can rest easier now that I know that his children will not go without.

      We are truly overwhelmed with you generosity. If you’re a fisherman then you know that it’s feast or famine. My son’s children will grow up without Leigh’s support, but with your donations, we will entrust to their future. Thank you so much, and all our love.
