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.
Peter suffered a massive stroke and was taken to Charing Cross hospital and following tests his family were advised that the damage to his brain was extensive.
He was best known as the driving force behind PDF Models, a business he set up with his father some six years ago. Since that time, his inspired designs have had a major impact on the garden railway community, and I doubt there many modelers in the larger scales who have not heard of Peter & his wonderful models. His enthusiasm, drive, and energy within our sphere of enjoyment will be sorely missed.
This fund is for Peter’s wife and daughter at such a sad and tragic time. I hope this will give them some financial support they may need in the coming months.

About the fundraiser
I met Peter many years ago when we forged a friendship though a mutual interest in in model engineering and garden railways. Peter & I would spend hours discussing the finer points of engineering design, I shall miss his company and inspiration more than I can ever explain.
