Martin & Carol emergency fund

In this time of need we are swallowing our pride and asking for your generous support and help. 

My fiancee's mother was taken seriously ill back in the summer, spent several weeks in a coma and subsequently suffered a stroke which placed a great amount of pressure on us emotionally and financially as we tried to help out on top of our own commitments. Our intention was to get married so that she could be part of our special day, this 'gofundme' account was originally set up as a wedding fund. Unfortunately, she died in the days before Christmas and all our expenses towards funeral costs have left us in financial dire straights at the start of this New Year. 

We have needed to use every last bit of our savings towards family and funeral costs which has left us destitute at this point in time with children to look after at home too. Any donation will mean that we have a chance of making it through January and hopefully be able to get back on our feet to arrange a wedding in due course. This will mean more to us than anything imaginable during this difficult time and keep us going. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for whatever you can give.
