    Weʼve raised £19,914 to Support the family of Firefighter Aston Everett

    Funded on Tuesday, 11th May 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?

    Story

    On the 2nd January 2021 Firefighter Aston Everett set off for work, leaving his wife and three children at home. He never returned.

    Whilst on duty that day, an aneurysm in Aston's brain burst. Despite the efforts of the firefighters on duty, the paramedics who responded, the hospital staff and specialists at two hospitals, the damage caused was so severe that he was unable to survive.

    Aston's family are understandably absolutely devastated by the loss of their dedicated and devoted husband and father. Aston was a proud man, never wanting to ask for help, always offering support to others and always striving to do the right thing for his family. Aston had extremely high moral standards, he was the bread winner and the protector of his family, as well as his community.

    Aston is unable to ask for help now and so I am asking you to help support his family at this awful time.

    When a firefighter is taken too soon the fire community up and down the country look to chip in to support the families that are left behind. This is what this JustGiving page is about. We are looking to collect enough money to support his family, to ensure that his children don't go without, to remove the financial burden and enable the family to grieve their loss. The target we have set (£32000) is the equivalent to a Firefighters annual salary

    Aston was a brilliant man and a brilliant Firefighter. He was conscientious, principled and dedicated.

    Having completed 16 years of service, Aston was soon to become eligible to retire due to his age. Retiring this year would have left Aston with a small pension. Aston knew that the reality was that he would need to carry on working once he had left the Fire Service to continue to make ends meet and provide for his family. Even in the last few months, knowing that retirement was approaching Aston was still setting himself professional challenges, never wanting to take his foot off the accelerator.

    Please donate to help support his family, every pound collected will make a difference.
