A message from Alyssa's church family:

Financial Needs

In addition to the immense sadness of Mikey’s passing, his death has left Alyssa and the boys in a dramatically changed financial and material situation. Members of her church family have been discussing her needs with her and have tried to come up with a programme of support that is both appropriate and meets Alyssa, Finn and Zac’s needs. At this stage, we are hoping to raise £16,000 for six months of childcare and living expenses and £15,000 for the purchase of a used, but sufficiently new and cost-effective to operate, family car (Alyssa and Mikey had borrowed cars up to this point) for a total of £31,000. This will allow the family time to properly grieve and put in place longer-term solutions to meet childcare and living needs.

One-Off Gifts

St Nick’s is limited by law in the ways it can use and give money to Alyssa. As such, we have set up this GoFundMe page to collect one-off donations towards the expenses mentioned above to ensure that they can be given directly to Alyssa to meet these core needs. If you would like to give to these needs and the GoFundMe page has reached its goal, then any additional funds will go towards the family's longer-term needs.

Regular Giving

If you would prefer to commit a regular amount to cover childcare costs (e.g. a monthly amount for the next 6 months), or are prepared to consider supporting the family regularly in the longer term, then please reach out to the contacts below who are coordinating this. We expect living expenses and childcare costs to decrease significantly once a longer-term solution is in place, but ongoing support of one form or another will be required for the foreseeable future.

Giving to St Nick’s

As mentioned, St Nick’s cannot directly support Alyssa with most of these costs. It has already done so to the maximum extent permitted by the Charities Commission. St Nick’s has a hardship fund to which Alyssa will be able to submit requests in the same way as any other church member, but which cannot funnel donations to Alyssa. Having said that, if you have to give tax efficiently (e.g. through Stewardship) and would like to make a gift to that fund, please reach out to the contacts below.

Contacts

Please do not contact Alyssa directly about giving. Christian Stuart, churchwarden at St Nick’s and godfather to Zac, is helping coordinate the fundraising. Please contact him at christianjstuart at outlook dot com with any queries or pledges, copying in Carrie Fishlock carrie at snca dot co dot uk who is also helping Alyssa.
