Andrew was a young man who fought through so many challenges in his young life, and yet was simply just a lovely young man who provided countless hours of dedicated service for the club that he loved unconditionally over the course of the last few years. Andrew’s warm and engaging personality; alongside a disarming smile and infectious laugh ensured that he was a much loved character, and he possessed an extraordinary ability to improve the mood of all those around him in no time at all.
There was never any indication that Andrew wanted any other remuneration for his voluntary work other than the knowledge that he was helping OUR club. Andrew had his whole life in front of him and had no agendas other than to volunteer his time for the benefit of the club that he loved. I am also sure all who read this will be able to recognise and empathise with the unimaginable pain and grief that Andrew’s family are going through at this time.
Rob Trafford (Head of Communications at Macclesfield FC) has been in daily contact with Andrew’s family. What has become clear from Rob’s discussions with the family is that the devastating loss of Andrew, has been exacerbated by the stress of trying to find some way of finding the money to provide Andrew with the sort of funeral that he so much deserves. In the opinion of the SST board, now is the perfect opportunity for all of us to show what Andrew did for our club is truly appreciated by the Silkmen family.
The SST aim to raise £4200 to help to pay for Andrew’s funeral and lessen some of the burden on the Galloway family, whilst also helping to provide Andrew with the kind of send off that he so much deserves. The SST are providing an initial £1000 donation to the appeal, and it would be wonderful if many of the Silkmen family contribute what they can to help us to achieve our intended target.
