Weʼre raising £4,500 to help a dear, bereaved, friend, with 2 young daughters to have the holiday of a lifetime

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.
We have a very dear friend, with two young daughters.
A couple of years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer and, while she was recovering from treatment, her husband - the girls' father - was also diagnosed with cancer. After a long and sad struggle, during which our friend continued to work - in her words 'to be somewhere where I don't have to think about cancer' - her husband, their father, has now died
Through all of the awful times she would say that when it is all over - as she knew it would be - she would love to take her girls to the Maldives for a week. We would love to send her on her dream holiday but can't do it without some financial help.
