    Weʼve raised £2,095 to Bring Brian Easton Home

    Funded on Saturday, 15th September 2018

    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.



    This is for all friends of Brian Easton. He is in very poor health in USA and further medical treatment is no longer available to him. We have a chance to bring him back to Dundee at the beginning of June. Funds have been raised for him over there to secure a flight.

    Jim Smyth has kindly offered to travel to California and escort him home as a number of flights are involved and Brian’s sight is severely impaired.

    We need to finance Jim’s flights and any extra expense incurred during and after the journey.

    A number of you have expressed a wish to help and hopefully this crowdfunding page will provide sufficient funds to enable us to BRING BRIAN HOME!

      Update: Brian is undergoing treatment after surgery at Ninewells Hospital. He is recovering well and has settled back into Tayside with all his old chums. He has asked me to thank all you amazing people for making this outcome possible; without you his future would have been very bleak. A big thank you to Jim Smyth who instigated the project. Your donations have enabled us not only to bring Brian home but to make sure he continues to have quality of life. Thank you all 💕 ( this page will close in 7 days).

      I met Brian for coffee & cake yesterday. He’s in good spirits and his sister Evelyn has been very busy arranging everything to make life a good bit easier for him. He has been to the hospital and will receive treatment very soon. He is so grateful to you all for making it all possible. I read him the donator’s list yesterday and he was visibly touched at just how kind you all have been. WE BROUGHT BRIAN HOME thanks to your generosity. Thank you x

      An update re Brian for all you very generous contributors. We now have a phone funded for the first year by Jimmy Ross; a big thanks for that Jimmy. An indestructible phone case has been bought also and Brian is, at the moment, learning to ‘drive’ the phone. His sister Evelyn is this week organising everything for him. The funds will be used in future for any equipment/furniture he needs when he is housed. I will be giving him a list of donators. If any of you wish to contact Brian he is happy for his number to be made public: 07853066990 💕

      Sorry to hear about Brian - I was a neighbour of the Easton family and I hope this little amount helps Brian. I was a member of the Lawson family. Best wishes to Evelyn and Brian.
