    Story

    In the early hours of Thursday 8th December, my dad along with his two crew, Larry and Jervis, head out to sea in what was perfect fishing conditions. They were on a straight course, one they have done many times before, but at about 5:30am the Commodore Goodwill struck them, almost instantly sinking them. Search and rescue efforts were made but all three remain missing. We know now that there is no hope of them coming home alive, but we continue to search for them all, to bring them home to rest.

    Larry and Jervis would spend 9 months at a time working with my dad and sending home a good portion of the money they made to their families back home in the Philippines. Jervis had just been home for 3 months and was back for another 9 months as he was so fond of my dad and the work he was doing.

    My family would like to do as much as we can for Larry and Jervis, we know money will never bring them back but we can at least take some of the stress away and allow them time to grieve without the burden of financial troubles.

    We know a lot of people may find it hard to donate at this time but a little will go a long way, so please donate as much or as little as you can.

      I have been made aware that a handful of media outlets have incorrectly reported this JustGiving page as a fundraiser to support the families of my dad, and his crew. For complete transparency and clarification, the entirety of funds raised will be split equally between Larry and Jervis’s families.

      We are utterly gobsmacked by the response so far and would like to thank everyone that has donated. Although our original target has been far exceeded we are still asking for people to donate as much or as little as they can. The more we can raise the more relief we can give to their families at such a heartbreaking time. We don’t want money to be something they have to be concerned about.
