Funds for James Smiths' funeral

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Quick update 24/8/17- despite the page only being created the other day, we have almost met our goal already! Thank you so much for everyone who shared the page and donated; every penny that has been donated has made the difference, and with every Facebook share the page has become more widespread. We can't be more grateful
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As im sure that many of you know, James sadly passed away suddenly at home on the 18th of August. James was only in his forties, and should have had many more years ahead of him. Nobody should pass away this young.

James leaves his wife Sian and his four beloved children Ben, Jay, Maia and Joe. Sian is truly a kind woman, who would help anyone who found themselves struggling, and I feel that we should do the same for her.  

As family and friends, we should support Sian in these difficult times by alleviating her stress of singlehandedly finding the funds for a send-off James deserves. Every penny that is donated will be given to Sian to help pay towards the funeral costs.

No donation is too small, and will be much appreciated. On behalf of the family, I thank everyone who spreads the word and gives a little to a good cause.

Sian is aware of the campaign, and has given her blessing for it to go forward.

*Please note that the campaign will end on the 5th of september, so make sure you donate before it is too late!*
