A wedding for Becky & Richard

£6,970 of £7,500 goal

Raised by 388 people in 2 months
This is a plea on behalf of my friends daughter Becky and her husband to be, Richard to help them find the funds to get married as soon as possible.

Richard has been diagnosed with grade 4 (MI) esophageal cancer, mets of the liver and lymph nodes, with an estimate of 2-8 weeks to live.

Becky and Richard had booked their dream wedding in Jamaica for 2nd Aug this year, however due to his diagnosis, this will not be possible, and they have lost the deposits etc.

Her mum, Lyn, and I have started trying to plan a wedding before the end of this month (January) but funds are limited and it is Richards dying wish to wed his high school sweetheart of 20 years.

As you can imagine, the cost of a wedding, venue and registrar soon added up, not to mention the little things like flowers, balloons, hair and makeup, photographers etc...

So, the big question, could you spare a few pounds to help make Richards dying wish a reality? If so, please use this link to donate a few pounds and share this link to spread our plea for help.

Thank you so much for your help.

Wishing you all good health in 2017

Tonight I had the privilege of taking Becky and Richard to view a venue, which was lovely... now all they need is the licence to enable them to set a date... the wheels are in motion and we will be reaching out to all of the kind and wonderful people who have offered to help.
There are still lots of items on our list
Steel Drums
LOVE light up letters

if you can help with any of the above, please inbox us.
Also, thank you so much for your generosity in donating towards funding this special date, without this support, this would be impossible.
