Help to get to Granddad’s funeral

Sadly my granddad passed away this evening the day after his daughter (my Aunt) was buried. We are all devastated.

I could not make it over for my aunt’s funeral because of the location- New Zealand- which was very hard. It would be even harder to miss my grandad’s funeral too and I really want to be there to support my dad during this very hard time.

All of this has happened at a time where I have very limited funds and of course last minute flights are not cheap.

I would love any help to try get me over there. Thankfully family members are loaning my sister and I money to get flights- but we still need to find funds for car hire while there, accommodation, and my loss of wages to cover my rent. I am self employed and will miss my income while I attend the funeral.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
