Baby Jacob, The Little Angel

£21,939 of £20k goal

Raised by 1,039 people in 18 months
Baby Jacob gained his Angel wings at 7pm on Wednesday 14th October 2015, The exact time the amazing Hartlepool people and far beyond set off there yellow balloons.

His parents now need time to grieve properly and come to terms with losing thier baby boy.
It is now with a heavy heart I write that this fund will now go towards Jacob's funeral cost's and gives the parent's abit of space to not have to worry about going back to work for the forseeable future.

Thanks

We now have the details for the route to say goodbye to hartlepools little soldier JACOB.

Can you please read this statement and share with anyone who will be attending as we need this to go perfect for Jacob's family on the day.

The funeral will take place at St Joseph's church at 1pm on Wednesday 28th october for FAMILY and FRIENDS.
The public are invited to attend but please make sure family have priority.

The family have asked you wear traditional black and white with a hint of YELLOW please.
This is for the people attending the church service.
We think the service will be about 30-40 minutes.

After the service the horse drawn carriage will leave St Joseph's onto Victoria Rd.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT STAND AT VICTORIA ROAD.
We are asking this because we would like the family a few minutes after the service alone time.

Once the carriage enter's York Road we ask that you please hold onto your balloons until AFTER the horse's have passed.
WE DON'T WANT TO SPOOK THE HORSE'S.

The turnout is expected to be huge so please fill York Rd from Castledene estate's to the roundabout at the bottom.
This being Burn Valley roundabout.
The children are off school at this time so please keep children close and away from the road.

If you have flowers that you want to give we have a black 4x4 at the back of the cortege..
You can place your flowers here.
These flowers will be taken to the clock tower at Seaton.
The family can then visit these in the day's after.

After the roundabout at the bottom of York Road we ask that the family be left alone to say goodbye to Jacob.
We need to give this family a chance to be together at this time.

The public outpouring of emotion's and poem's and pictures have been a great comfort to Abigail and David over the past few day's.
They would love to say thank you so much to each and everyone of you all.

Let's unite as a Town and show Jacob and his family a huge Hartlepool farewell.
PROUD TO BE A POOLIE.
TURN IT FROM BLUE TO YELLOW.
LET'S DO JACOB PROUD XXX

Note* for anyone who cannot attend the funeral and the people who have personally messaged me to send sympathy cards, the address of the funeral parlours is:

Strathmore House
10 Stockton Road
Hartlepool
TS25 1TY

I on behalf of the family would like to thank everyone who has donated and sent lovely messages so far.

A special thank you to Natalie Cummings for the idea of the gathering with the yellow balloons at Seaton Carew and for Stephen Picton for pushing the idea forward, seeing all the pictures and videos of people gathering with the yellow balloons all over the town can only give the family some comfort in this difficult time.

Also a special thank you to Hartlepool Alert for sharing the link onto there page and getting it out to the 1000's.

Big thank you to Nathan Greathead and Peter Rooney for the collection that will be done at the Evening with Calzaghe on Friday.

The town of Hartlepool has excelled once again.

Baby Jacob gained his Angel Wings at 7pm tonight. The exact time everyone set off there yellow balloons in Hartlepool and far beyond.

The parents now need time to grieve, it breaks my heart to say this but this fund will now help with baby Jacob's funeral costs and give his family the funds to not have to worry about going back to work. This is a truly heartbreaking story.
