Support for 2 children of Martin Griffiths - Derby

Support for the two children of Martin Griffiths -Derby Double Murder Victim

As you have probably seen in the press, Derby has had a double tragedy on New Year’s day with the murders of Martin Griffiths and Helen Hancock in Duffield.  

Tragically there are now five children who have been left heartbroken and without a parent.  A separate fund raising page has been opened for Helen’s three Children.  This page has been created for Martin’s children, Lily and Oliver.

Martin’s passion in life was being a hands on Dad.   On his Facebook page he describes himself as a dad and best friend to two children.  As a family they were always on adventures and in their words “making memories”.   On  his last evening with friends he was said to have been the proudest dad and showing everyone who would look pictures of his two adored children. 

This close nit unit has been ripped apart in the most shocking way possible.   Martin and Claire had only recently separated and life was already upsetting for Lily and Oliver. .  

The family are beyond devastated and can only take one day at a time at present.   Whilst the children and their mother grieve, as her friends and family we would like to help in a practical way of easing the financial burden.

All the money raised will go to helping the children.  A well renowned IFA has very kindly agreed to assist free of charge in the placement of all funds raised in to a trust fund for the children so that it can grow and help the children to achieve their dreams as they hopefully head off to university or buy their first house or even attempt Everest which was Martin’s dream. 

Any amount would be much appreciated.  Please share this post so it can reach more people and hopefully raise more money.
