Our beloved friends Jason Francis and Alice Robinson tragically passed away on Saturday 22nd December. Although they felt like family to us all their true families live in the UK.
We have set up this Gofundme page to help the Francis and Robinson families with any costs that might be incurrred in sending their loved ones home.
Anything you are able to spare will help and all monies will be held in the Cottesloe Rugby Club account until the campaign closes and at which point the money will be passed onto the families in equal shares.
*Update* This campaign is still not over yet. Please keep sharing. Every dollar donated is going to help the families immensely.
*Update* This campaign has been a huge success and as such means we will be able to help both families with any costs incurred with repatriating the bodies of Jason and Alice. The fund will be withdrawn to the Cottesloe Rugby savings account where it will be used to pay any bills accumulated while both bodies are in Perth. Any additional funds left left after all the repatriation costs have been covered will be transferred to the families in the UK.
The Cottesloe Rugby bank accounts require 2 party approval to withdraw any fund and the accounts are audited anunually so you can be assured that the money you have donated is going where it was intended.
As President of Cottesloe Rugby, I would like to thank you all once again for your incredible generosity.
