In the early hours of Wednesday the 13th of February, father of 2, Nigel Tilley, was tragically killed in a single vehicle accident. Nigel had nearly completed his long work journey and was due home to his family later that afternoon. The accident has left his devastated wife, Kirsty, as a single mother to her two beautiful young sons. Kirsty has always been a pillar of strength, wisdom and love within both her circles of friends, as well as her work community where she has been saving animals lives for well over a decade. We are hoping to show Kirsty the same generosity, love and support that she has always shown to others, and help get her and her boys through this catastrophic event and to a place where they can once again see the light. As I’m sure you can imagine, with everything that is going on for the family, there is little time to think about the day to day practical things like cooking meals, feeding the animals and cleaning their enclosures, walking the dog, doing the groceries, getting the kids to school and extra curricular activities (of course only once they feel ready), cleaning and other household tasks that need to be done. We are hoping to raise a small amount of money to contribute to keeping the family afloat while they navigate this difficult journey together. Anything that doesn’t go directly into food/bills/school expenses etc would be available to Kirsty for any unexpected costs which will likely arise in the near future. Much love to everyone, whether you can contribute or not. Life can be extinguished in a split second, so remember to hug your loved ones tight tonight xxx
The first 10k will be going to cover the cost of Nigel’s funeral. All money after that will go toward things stated above, daily life expenses so Kirsty can take the time needed to look after her boys.
Those who have already donated we cannot thank you enough. No mate how big or small as we can see it all adds up very quickly.
We are truely heart broken at the lost of our mate, Uncle, brother, Son, Dad and husband.
