Support for The Burford Family
In order to help his family through his extremely difficult time, we decided to set up this fund. Richard was the sole income earner for the family as Sara had her hands full with their 3 toddlers. The idea is that anyone who can and wants to is able to help Richard's family cope with the unexpected costs associated with his untimely death and also help with other expenses in the coming months for his children and wife, maybe even for the future.
Richard was the kind of man who filled up a room when he walked in. He was extremely smart and quick witted - attracting a huge circle of friends. His loss has left a huge hole in the hearts of so many.
All funds will go to Sara in support of her and their children.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
A service will be held on Wednesday the 24th of February in St. Bede's Chapel, Teeside Crematorium at 2pm. We will be continuing to the Twisted Lip after the service to celebrate Richard's life. x
Richard was a big hearted man who touched the lives of so many, he always wanted the best for everyone and helped so many along the way. He had big dreams and set out to make them come true. He worked so hard to make sure we could do the same for our children.
Your generosity has taken away the worry for the immediate future and beyond. Every penny raised will help give a piece of Daddy back to our children, and I am eternally grateful.
All our love,
Sara, William, Lucy and Kate

It goes to show what a great guy Richard was and how many wonderful people there are out there who care enough about another family to want to make a difference.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
