Weʼre raising £20,000 to Purchase ‘The Steve Tyson Memorial Beach Hut’

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.


On June 3rd 2018 our dear friend Steve Tyson passed away after the most courageous of battles with throat cancer. His beautiful wife Michelle (his beloved Minky) and 11 year old son Freddie have been left with a big void in their lives.

Steve had such a big heart, big personality and loved his family and friends so much. All of us have been thinking what we could do, not only as a fitting memorial to Steve but something both Michelle and Freddie could enjoy. if sent by Steve, a Beach Hut has become available near the family home. This, we feel, would be the most perfect of memorials to Steve. A place of happiness, reflection, and fun for all that knew and loved him. Somewhere Michelle and Freddie could make happy memories on a daily basis and where we could all gather annually for a beach party to remember our friend.

Michelle told me about the beach hut and how rare it is for one to become available, she really feels that the timing of its availability was meant to be. Please give what you can to help us make this wonderful dream into a reality for Michelle and Freddie.

    The vendor of the beach hut, which Michelle was hoping to buy, has gone quiet and we suspect he has accepted a higher offer. Therefore undeterred we are pressing on with fundraising. During September there will be a boat trip fundraiser and we are currently planning a dress sale for the Autumn. Please rest assured the dream to see ‘Steve’s Beach Shack’ is very much alive. Losing out on the original beach hut is disappointing but it allows us time now to raise more mone, so that the cost to Michelle lessens.
