Funeral Expenses

To friends old and new

we are sadly making this page due to the tragic and sudden loss of our Jona leaving behind his brothers, Dad and 20 month old Son Elijah.

Jona passed away on 28th November quite suddenly in Sunderland Royal Hospital, the family were not prepared for this and have no plans in place In which to fund a basic funeral service. 

Jona has been working at Nissan but on a zero hour contract meaning he wasn’t guaranteed shifts, he worked 2 shifts in the last 3 weeksbut because of this he is not entitled to benefits to help with the expense.

Jona had a hard life and suffered quite significantly with his health but lately he was dedicated to trying to make a brighter future for his son Elijah, the family would really appreciate any donation you can make, we appreciate times are hard for everyone but together we hope some of the families stress can be eased at this awful time.

Thank you in advance Iain, Chris, Iain and Elijah
