    Weʼve raised £3,808 to Silchester School, in memory of Augusta Nobre.

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    My Wife Augusta was a 46 years old healthy Lady that die suddenly on 31/10/2018 with Subarachnoid Haemorrhage (Stroke), She left a beautiful 8 years old Son with name of Alex.

    The reason of the Fundraise is to honour her memory, and to help the School where Alex is learning and preparing his future.

    All the money raised here will go to Silchester School, we don't know yet what we'll do or buy with money, but I'm working directly with Mrs Williams (Headteacher) and other Teachers to do or buy something that the School may need and will last long time, so everyone will remember Augusta for it. Once we decide, we'll update this page.

    All my friends, the school Mum's & Dad's, people from Silchester, our customers been extremely supportive with my lost. I can't thank you all enough for all the offer to help us, it definitely has easy our pain in this terrible time of our life's.

    At this time I'll ask for your help, I'm sure Augusta would love that everyone would help the school that is educating her Son. Anything that you can give us will be greatly appreciated, please donate something to make all of us happy, and keep Augusta's memory at the school for long time.

    We’ve reach a decision on what to do with funds in Alex school, I’ll try to explain as best as I can, and hope it makes sense!

    Some of you know the school well, some don’t know it at all, so…at the back of the school (Playground) is a massive beautiful tree, at the base is a decking area. So the school want to fence this decking area and create a beautiful sense Garden full of colours and smells, it will have plants with strong smell, bamboo instruments, mushroom seats for classes, and of course a plaque in Augusta’s memory. Hope everyone agree that will be a wonderful thing for the School and Alex, it’ll not bring his Mum back, but will make him very proud of her!

    I and Alex meet the Teachers and all of us agree that is a beautiful idea, the most important thing is for Alex to be happy, I want him to fell special and always remember his Mum. I believe this garden will help and make the school more beautiful, and Alex always will see his Mum there.

    I again ask for your help, the garden will cost more than £5000, a bit more than what we have so far. Including the funeral donation we have a total of £3278.00. I’ll try to get more donations from friends, my customers, suppliers, anyone… but also would like to ask all of you that already donated or not yet, if you could spare any money for this cause we’ll be greatly appreciated from the bottom of our hearts.

    Regarding us: probably lots of you are wondering and worrying about our wellbeing. All the support from our friends, the school, the Mums/Parents and the village of Silchester itself has been just amazing. I couldn’t ask to be anywhere else while going through these tough times…I just don’t have enough words to thank everyone.

      Update from the Page owner

      Thank you everyone for all your support, I & Alex are very happy with result...not quite the £6k but we've around £4k at the end! Not quite enough for the complete project, but I'll try to get some more funds together... I've been told that the building of the garden will start in February half term, not sure when will be complete!

    Augusta & I had a beautiful long life together since teenager's time in Portugal, full of hard work, happiness, and problems (like everyone else). However, together with our love we overcome every life problem and make it go away, we were invincible.
