Weʼve raised £255 to pay respects to Michael Hornblow by raising some money for Ellis, a young lad who had a profound effect on dad in the short time he new him.
- Funded on Wednesday, 14th March 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 charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Dad’s funeral will be on Wednesday 22nd November, 2pm at St Peter's Church, Didcot. Everyone is welcome. Flowers can be sent c/o M&J Didcock Funeral Service, Park Road, Didcot, OX11 8QL. Donations if you prefer for a teenager called Ellis who my dad met in the haemodialysis ward at the Churchill hospital. Meeting Ellis had a profound effect on my dad. He’s been living with kidney failure for many years and life is pretty crap for him. Dad hated being on haemodialysis, going up to the hospital 3-4 days a week and spending hours hooked up to a machine, and he only had to do it for a short time, plus Dad had lived a full life. This is not the case for Ellis and dad's heart went out to him. If we raise some money for Ellis to have a day out, or top up his mobile phone, or just binge on big mac and fries, I think dad would be pretty happy with that. Ellis is not a faceless charity and this would be what dad would have wanted.

Thank you all so much for your incredibly generous donations. I have spoken to Ellis's dad and I am going to go and see him this weekend with a bucket load of money. In total we have raised just over £400 (including cash donations). That is one heck of a lot of maccy d's!! Seriously though, thank you. Dad would be amazed, pleased and very, very happy. From the bottom of mine and Jason's hearts, thank you. xx

In loving memory of Dad/Mike. We’ve never met Ellis but we’ve heard a lot about him. Hope he spends this unwisely!
