I am writing this through tears as we lost my beautiful, kind hearted, wonderful Nanna on the 27th April 2018.
She leaves behind a daughter, 2 Grandchildren and 6 Great Grandchildren, but my reasons for this plea is to help my beyond devastated Granddad.
He & my Nan were together over 70yrs and would have been married 65yrs this Xmas day. Granddad has lost his soulmate, his true love, his heart.
He is the best person I know & I can't do much to help him, but if I can ease his pain & worry even slightly I know I've done something & my Nan would be proud.
My grandparents did everything together, & even still held hands walking down the street after 7 decades together.
My poor distraught Granddad has 1 thing he loved to do outside of being with his beloved wife.
At 88 years old he still goes to his local golf club to play a little golf, see friends etc but it is so expensive.
It costs around £1,000 a year membership.
I don't want him to worry about having to pay for this or to worry he'll have to give it up. I really hope to raise enough money to pay for the remainder of this year's membership and next year's so I can at least take away this one worry for him.
I also want to help give my Nan the best send off as she was an incredible lady.
My Granddad will need his friends & to try to keep going forward so if you can help me with my cause at an impossibly sad time, please do.
Any amount will help & I thank you all in advance from the bottom of my broken heart xx
