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.

Story

Tim Fisher, the seemingly lonely man selling The Big Issue on The Grove opposite Christchurch for several years, passed away peacefully in hospital on Monday.

He was known by many simply as Tim, and to many more as The Big Issue seller.

Tim had led a very colourful early life and was no stranger to illness, but through it all he remained remarkably cheerful.

He had little in the way of material possessions, but he would gladly give what little he had to those he felt were in more need than himself.

He was always grateful for the support he received from his customers, many of whom he was pleased to call his friends.

Tim will be sadly missed.

****update*****

Thanks to the generosity of all who have responded we have extended the appeal to raise the £2500 that we have been advised by the funeral director will be required to give Tim a Church funeral service and final committal. This is proposed for mid July when hopefully Covid restrictions will be lessened and more people can attend. Any monies left over will be used for an appropriate memorial for Tim.

Many thanks to all who have donated so generously.
