Repatriation for Ashley Overend

On the 1st Oct 2019 My beautiful son Ashley “Valentino Rossi” Overend was tragically involved in a fatal accident in his van. 

He was driving home from Germany after making his delivery for work.

I spoke to him on Tuesday morning, laughing about how long the motorway was, 448km! He said he would see me later as he had lost his wallet the previous day and I was to reorder his driving license. I said goodbye “drive safe”

@12:35am Wednesday morning I received the dreaded knock on the door from the police.

All I can tell you all at the moment is that the accident happened on the A67 in a place called Hapert in Holland.

we as a family are faced with a repatriation cost of £5500 just to get this gorgeous boy home to his family. 

Instead of donations at the funeral we would very much appreciate any donations to get him home and any extra could help to fly his brother over from New Zealand.

one last request.... if anyone would like to #valentino Rossi just to see if he’s available for his biggest fan that would be amazing!!

Thank you all for your kind messages I promise I will reply to each and every one of you as soon as I can.
