In Rafes memory and epilepsy awareness

It's with a very heavy heart that we have to say goodbye to a much loved friend Rafe Carter who  has been taken from us all too early . Not only will Rafe be leaving us all behind much before his time, but also his family who loved him dearly and his 2 sons.  It's not an age where you think you'd be planning or paying for a funeral, Rafe would have been turning 30 on the 22nd July, so this isn't the planning anyone thought would be taking place. His family have asked for our help and we think we can all pull together at this heart breaking time for them all and help towards funeral costs aswell. Any donation amount will help and will be gratefully received. At a time when we can't all physically be together, this is our final opportunity to be there for our friend, a son, father, brother and uncle, missed by everyone. Thank you for taking the time to read this and should you wish to donate to help with funeral costs and to help save some money towards his sons futures, we thank you for any help. Through this campaign we would also like to make awareness of epilepsy and how it can really affect lives of people that suffer from it. Rafe suffered from Epilepsy from the age of 11 and had tonic clonic seizures. His seizures had caused him injuries in the past and on 11th July he unfortunately had a seizure which took his life. In the UK 1000 people a year die from causes related to epilepsy and Rafe's family would like to raise awareness of this.
