In Memory of Nadine Roberts
£3,697 of £3,500 goal
These will be all be given 100% to Nadine's partner and support him and her immediate family a little towards funeral costs, with 5% of each donation going to "GoFundMe" who we have used to handle your kind donation.
With the nice offer by Carrie Paris who has offered to send a rare Frieda Harris poster to one person chosen at random from those who might like to donate £22 or more, we are also offering a signed copy of the MAGISTER by Marcus Katz to one person who will also be chosen from those donating £5 or more. We would like to do this to say thank you for every donation of every amount in Nadine's memory.
Whilst we have never done anything like this before, and do not expect to meet all the expenses (in excess of the target which we have to put for the campaign) we would like to say that in the miracle that we do, any additional funds would still go to Nadine's partner towards any further costs at this time.
Dear Marcus and all Tarot associates,
To everyone far and near who were as shocked and hurt as much as we have been by the sudden passing of our beloved Nadine.
John, Margaret, Alan, Kirsty, Grant, Ethan and Elijah, would like to say how grateful and humbled we are by the amazing messages and support that you so unselfishly gave to all of us.
We are overwhelmed at the suggestions put forward in remembrance of Nadine such as the scholarship and the collection of blogs.
We are truly grateful for the friendships and support you have given Nadine through the Tarot community.
Through her discovery of Tarot she discovered herself and discovered an avenue to channel her love of helping people. She grew as a person, accepted herself and looked to understand herself more through Tarot, this self enlightenment made her shine. For this self discovery, happiness and acceptance we can only ever thank you for being there alongside her journey.
All of the above together with the funding that was initiated so quickly after hearing our sad news was so overwhelming to us and it is important to us that we able to say "Thank You" to everyone concerned.
These two small words do not seem enough so please let us add that they are sent from our hearts to yours and are sent with humility and gratitude.
Our fondest regards always
John, Margaret, Alan, Kirsty, Grant, Ethan and Elijah.
We have now closed the fund-raising and the fund will be transferred directly to Alan, Nadine's partner, towards the funeral and service costs.
There will be a further update on our Facebook group from the family at a suitable time in the future.
Again, with all our thanks for your incredible and lovely support in memory of a truly authentic person and tarot reader.
Marcus & Tali
We close the fund on Sunday, and as a final generous offer of support, Chris Butler (artist of Quantum Tarot & other works) has gifted us a set of 19 original hand-drawn tarot images which will be given to one person selected from those who have donated £22 or more, with our thanks.
Please might we ask you to share this fund-raising one final time before we close it and contribute the funds to Nadine's partner Alan to offset the costs of Nadine's service.
Again, with all our thanks and the thanks of the family, beyond measure, you have done a very good thing indeed for a very fine person who will be greatly missed.
Marcus & Tali
We spoke to Alan this morning and he and Nadine's parents are truly overwhelmed by the support you have given them at this time in memory of Nadine.
It goes some way to reflect the love in which Nadine was held by our group and each of us.
We have raised the initial target a little to avoid any possible confusion that it was the "maximum" when it has always been the least we hoped to raise.
We will continue to receive donations until Sunday 12th July 2015, particularly for everyone who is supporting our efforts through their donation in response to the "Tarot Class to Become a Brill Reader" event - which will also be available to everyone who has previously donated.
Due to your wonderful support, should we reach any amount over the costs of the service and related matters by Sunday, the family will be passing any additional amount to Diabetes UK, a British-based research charity.
Again, all our thanks for this remarkable response. It speaks so much for our world and for those who share the passion for tarot and divination which was held so strongly by Nadine.
Marcus & Tali.
