Funeral Help Fund for Harold Maddox

My Dad’s Last Ride


Hi everyone. Hopefully by now, you’ll have heard of the sad passing of my father Harold Maddox on 7th March 2021. As I’m sure most will be aware, funeral costs are huge, and bless my Dad, he set up a funeral plan to cover the costs in the event of his death. Unfortunately he only managed to pay 7 years of a 10 year funeral plan before he passed away, which unfortunately leaves us with a shortfall to cover. He wasn’t a well off man financially so it’s down to us as a family to try and resolve the situation. This isn’t what he would have wanted us to be dealing with at such a tough time. Those who knew him well will know that he was a lover of motorbikes all of his life and had to give up riding a while after he had his strokes due to not being able to manage the weight of the bike anymore, and also because he would get lost during rides. With this in mind, and in order to give him the send off that he deserves, I come to you humbly with cap in hand with a donations fund, to try and raise as much as possible to help us raise the amount needed to hire a motorcycle side car hearse, so that he can have his last ride before we say farewell. And also a little extra to hopefully cover some of the cost of flowers, tributes & a small memorial stone. So many of you left well wishes and condolences, and so many of you knew him from his days spent at the Roebuck in Burslem, supporting the live music scene and taking photos of some of the fantastic memories made. We would be so appreciative of any help any of you could offer and myself, my brother Paul and our whole family Thankyou so much from the bottom of our hearts.
