A lovely lady who has been supporting me through this set up a Go Fund Me page after hearing that we would like William’s ashes made into diamonds for wedding bands. We can’t afford to do this with our savings having been spent on William’s funeral. Thank you so much for your donations it means so much to us.

Who Gives A Rock are a non-profit art abandonment group who paint beautiful pebbles and leave them in all manner of places around the county for the unsuspecting public to find, to bring smiles to people’s faces and love to people’s lives. Who Gives a Rock have kindly donated 4 rocks that they’ll be auctioning off this evening (link below) and any money raised will be donated to William’s Just Giving page. We cannot thank Who Gives a Rock and Pebble Painter enough for their generosity in raising awareness and spreading the love of William’s legacy. He would be very proud, as are we.
When William passed away many friends and family asked whether they could send us flowers, but there were so many we thought the money would be better spent if it was donated to charity in lieu of flowers.
We decided on a local charity called Frontline Emergency Equipment Trust (FLEET). FLEET is a charity which is provides emergency equipment of all the Frontline ambulances in Cornwall. FLEET has provided equipment, bags, boxes, bins and much more to standardise the Cornish FLEET of ambulances.
We set up a Just Giving page for those that wanted to donate in William’s memory. We spoke to FLEET with our desire for any money donated in William’s memory to be spent on paediatric equipment, which they agreed to and would also have William’s name displayed on it.
We have been completely overwhelmed and humbled with the volume of people donating. To date the amount raised is £2,350 with over £500 of giftaid, all of which will go to the charity.
Any donations, no matter how small or large are greatly appreciated, thank you.
