    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 charity.

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

    Story

    Sadly the week before his death his mum became unemployed and cant get help towards funeral costs due to not being on benefits prior to his death. Everyone knows circumstances with sams own health which id rather not get into. They have all faced financial difficulty at this truly awful time and therefore can not afford to pay for all his funeral costs in excess of £3,000. His funeral was as basic as possible and due to circumstances they find themselves in a situation and can't afford the costs. They just want lee back. I have stated we want to raise £2000 anything more/less would be greatly received. No matter how little. Every pound counts.

    Lee truly was one in a million. They are now in difficult financial circustances due to him not having life insurance and they are really broke and face not being able to receive his ashes because they can not pay for his funeral costs. They would never usually ask anyone for help but they are in a desperate situation that they can not get out of.

    There is only Sam and Gail left, and Theresa whom is nearly 80 and doesn't have money either.This is such a truly heartbreaking situation for them and never in a million years I'd think i would be asking for any sort of money to help them out. They want their son, little brother & grandson back. People who knew Lee loved and liked him so much. It has been a horrific experience for them all and they would have never have thought they would ever lose such a loving kind hearted young boy at the age of 28 years old. It wasnt suicide. It is unexplained atm. Awaiting post mortem results.

      Total emotional mess writing this update. Target was set at £500 but that was hit within a few days so was then raised to 1k. That also was hit. So was then raised to 2k & it HAS HIT THAT TARGET. I can't beleive it. I've had so many people donate who didn't know Lee or even myself or my mum. You are now our friends. ALL OF YOU! ❤️We are still are waiting on the pm results which is quite daunting as we don't know the cause yet & its been such a worrying time. We honestly can't thank everyone enough for their support, cards, flowers & donations.
