£7,045 of £5,000 goal

Update:
We have pretty much hit our goal. And we should now be able to go ahead with the arrangements planned.


We all just want to say an enormous thank you to everyone who has donated. It has been incredible.


We are aware that friends in Korea may still want to contribute (and have been unable to do so yet due to the time difference)
So if you do still want to donate, we will ensure that it will go towards Kevin's service and a memorial for Kevin.


Once again, we cannot thank you enough for your generosity and kindness in helping ensure that Kev's friends and family are able to say goodbye. Both in Korea and here in the UK.


We are humbled and inspired by you all.


Original post:
As you may or may not be aware our friend Kevin Andresen sadly died in a tragic accident very recently.

The accident occurred in South Korea and Kevin is still there.

His friends in Korea and home have been amazing in their support and it just shows how Kevin touched the lives and hearts of people wherever he went.

His family and friends are now trying to meet the extraordinary costs of organising an international cremation and then bringing him home for a service in the UK.

Unfortunately these costs are rising everyday.

We want to organise the cremation in Korea as he loved it there so much, and for all of his friends there to be able to pay their respects.

We then want to transport him home so that his family and UK friends can say goodbye.

We would really appreciate your help in contributing to costs in doing this.

If you feel you are able, please donate and every penny we raise will go toward the costs associated with giving Kev the send off he deserves.

Any amount will be of huge help.


Thank you.

Thanks everyone for helping us not only reach our goal, but raise an amazing amount of money. The response has been overwhelming.

The South Wales Argus have even run a story on it.

The support shown by everyone so far has blown my mind. I have been totally gobsmacked by peoples generosity, even (and especially) by people who didn't know Kevin.

I know that Kevin's family and friends that are organising this effort are hugely grateful to everyone.

A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed.

We are almost there.

Thanks
