Support For The Chase Family

Craig Chase was a fighter and when he was diagnosed with Adrenocortical Carcinoma, an ultra rare and very aggressive cancer he fought hard to beat it, with his wife Vanessa and their two sons Mitchell and Stirling by his side.

Sadly on 7 March, just months after his 40th birthday, Craig's fight was over: "My most darling Craig and loving Daddy to Mitchell and Stirling, the fiercest of warriors grew his eternal wings this morning. He is at peace now, forever in our hearts, eternally loved." 

This now begins a new chapter in Vanessa, Mitchell (9) and Stirling's (7) lives.  A chapter in which they will need support from their friends and the community they have so readily supported through the years. 

To give Vanessa the time and space to focus on her family during this difficult period, we are raising funds to lighten the load. These will go towards Dinner Ladies vouchers (for meal deliveries), help with housework and gardening over the coming months, medical bills, and anything else that will help Vanessa, Mitch and Stirling as they begin to rebuild their lives.

All of the funds from this campaign will be going directly to Vanessa and she is very grateful for your support.
