Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are trying to raise funds, as a company, to help a fellow member of staff with the funeral costs for his beloved wife and mother to his 3 young children after Nic suddenly passed away on Monday the 8th of October 2018.
Nicola herself was a colleague of ours at Achievement Training before leaving to raise her young family. A qualified vet nurse, Nic joined our staff for four years, teaching Animal Care to young people and helping them into work in the field she loved, sharing her passion and good sense about the well-being of animals. Ex-students will be as shocked and stunned as her ex-colleagues to learn how this bright, funny and loving young mother has been taken from us.
Her husband Rich, Tutor/Assesor and H&S Officer at ATL, still works with us and we have all been worrying for the whole family whilst Nic has been ill. Their wonderful son was just two years old when we first got to know the Smouts and his two gorgeous little sisters were born whilst Nic was a colleague, so we have seen the whole family grow up together with much love and laughter.
We know that Rich and his children will be devastated by this loss. All our love and support may bring comfort as time passes, but nothing will return the heart of their family to them.
Anything practical than can be done to ensure an appropriate farewell would be so gratefully received.
