Love and Support for a Friend

Hello all. My name is Katt Alexander, living in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. I have an amazing friend is who going through an extremely hard time. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and for possibly donating. 

For those of you who know Samuel McManus, you will be aware he sadly lost his dad Rob, unexpectedly back in January. This year has been a very hard year for the family, with the effects of Covid-19 on top of this painful loss. 

Sadly Samuel's wonderful Mother passed way in the month of November, just ten months after Rob passing away.  Leaving Samuel and his two teenage brothers, Zach and Jacob.

I am heartbroken for the three of them, as I know lots of us are. I have set up this GoFund page with love for my dear friend. A little bit of love and support can go a long way. The donations being raised will not only help fund the funeral for his wonderful mother Jeanette but also support Samuel in these coming weeks and months. He has now taken on the responsibility of caring for his brothers. These next few months will be very trying for the three boys, with the possibility of having to find a new home as well. These donations will be a huge support to Samuel as their lives change.

Its overwhelming to see how many people care. Beyond words. At a time like this, it is wonderful to see a community coming together. Whether you have donated already or planning on doing so, thank you. Thank you for helping a young family,at a time when they need all the love and support they can get.

Here is a message from Samuel, Zach and Jacob:

Hello everyone,
We cannot even begin to thank you enough for the love, generosity and support we have received over the past week.
As you can imagine, we are absolutely broken and — although no amount of money can fix that — we believe the kindness and support from you all will truly help us heal over time.
We understand that everybody has had a tough year and is finding themselves in all sorts of positions this Christmas, which makes it even more special to see your donations to our family.
There are no words that can even begin to describe how thankful we are and we wish the best for all of you and your families.
Have a wonderful Christmas and we hope that next year can be better for all of us.
Samuel, Zach and Jacob xxxxx
