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.


We are so incredibly saddened to have recently lost the one and only William Marley.

One of his dying wishes was (in his typical style!) for his ashes to be placed in a firework and launched over the pit heaps in celebration of his life, with all of those he shared it with.

The mould was broken when he was made thats for sure, the man with the biggest heart and craziest sense of humour. God gained the biggest angel today but in doing so he's also taken a piece of me...

Willy was a true character and the rock of so many people's lives - a dad, brother, grandad, uncle, and friend. We want to make sure that his wishes are fully respected, but we are asking our wonderful community with love to support towards the costs involved in this.

You were the best, kindest, loving, amazing grandad we could ever have I am so heartbroken you left us at 4:15 but you will always be on my heart and I will never forget you ever!

Donations will first go directly to the costs of William's final goodbye, including the service, wake and memorial firework. Any excess will be donated to Alice House Hospice, a charity close to Willy's family as they cared for him in his final days. You can find out more about how memorial fireworks could be done here.

Another sad day for Wingate today. Willy you truely are one of the funniest men I've had the pleasure of knowing. This place won't be the same without you.

Thank you!
