    What is crowdfunding?

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    This is the Walsh family, Kirsty, Corey, Adalynn and Shane tragically Shane is no longer with us, having been victim to a tragic accident, where by he drowned in the river Severn in Shrewsbury on the September 3rd 2017, but wasn't found until 3 days later. the family is heartbroken, Shane was a lovely man a loving husband and Daddy.

    Shane worked hard and was the main breadwinner, unfortunately he had no life insurance or savings meaning his wife and two very young children have been left in a desperate situation - a young widow with two wonderful children to care for and support, with no income,

    Kirsty has been a tower of strength through out this ordeal, even getting Corey to his first day at nursery while Shane was still missing, she is showing great compassion for their children, while grieving herself.

    This family deserves a break, lots of people have offered support but dont know what to do here is something real which you can all do that will help now and in the future. All money raised will go to help Kirsty Corey and Adalynn stay on their feet. It is hoped if we raise enough money some can be put into a trust for the children so they can remember how much their Daddy meant to people and bring some meaning to this tragic loss.

    This was set up by Mick Hills Shanes step father and with full agreement of Kirsty and the Walsh family.
