Thanks to everyone who has contributed, we are at an astonishing £1,642 right now, which after fees and the wreath we sent for Dave's funeral is £1480.

 

I'm going to leave the Fundrazr open until this coming Sunday, 19th August then wrap it up.

 

We're still in the process of sorting a charity, or charities, for the money to go towards. I'll update everyone shortly on this.

I've been round at Dave's sister's house tonight, she's not long back from France, I also ended up speaking to Dave's other sister in France on the phone.
Both of which expressed sincere thanks for the kind words on here (before and since) and the collection.

I was told that Dave's neighbours insisted on providing the wake, closed the road in the hamlet and all came together (literally every single person) to provide the food and drink.
I doubt this was done officially but i suspect permission would have been easy if it was.
Both the mayors of the area he resided in and the one he worked in called his sister to express their sympathies having known him personally.

Does anyone remember posts about him repairing a disability vehicle (possibly some sort of sans-permit car)?
An elderly, disabled (and mostly housebound) neighbour of his had crashed the vehicle in question, when Dave found he went round to hers, got the keys and recovered the vehicle (requiring a trailer rather than just a pickup bed).
He fixed it (including buying new parts) and delivered it back to her, refusing to take a penny for his work.
Neither of his sisters knew this woman or that he had fixed her car until last week.


Again, thanks for the update, Tayne

Out of all of this, I think that's the saddest thing I've heard - that this lonely man should have been held in such high regard by his neighbours. I hope Dave knew how much his local community valued him.

I've wrapped up the Fundrazr campaign with a phenomenal total of £1647 raised by members of the forum. This translates to £1487.72 after the fees and the wreath we sent to the funeral are taken into account.

 

Well done everyone, thats a great response to a terrible set of circumstances.

Thanks for your patience folks, having spoken to Dave's family via Tayne they have expressed their huge gratitude to the forum for the kind words and generous donations in memory of Dave.

 

A letter from the family is being prepared to express their thoughts, but in advance of this Dave's family have asked that the money raised be split three ways. Having seen Dave's enjoyment of AS through his posts, they would like £200 to go to the forum funds. The remaining £1287.72 be split two ways between Alzheimers Scotland and Macmillan. Both causes have affected the family in the past and the money will be put to good use.

 

I will make the donations later this evening.

To echo what Billy had said, thank you so much Tayne for your committment to communicate between both parties.

It is amazing how so many nice words in that letter above can be so powerful. This forum really does never cease to amaze me to be quite honest regardless of any differences that crop up between us all from time to time.

Dave numbers you've been on my mind so much the last two weeks, I was in France the same day as your funeral, not that far away from you I believe, nearly asked for details but didn't want to intrude. A private silence was held for you.

For someone I've never met your death has truly knocked me. It's very clear you were loved and will be missed greatly.

Many thanks to Tayne for being the go between.

Monthly update on how we're doing.

 

Last Month, rather than run a Fundrazr for the running costs, we ran a campaign in memory of Dave21478, raising a fantastic total. Dave's sisters extremely kindly asked for £200 of the money raised go back to the forum as a thankyou from him, and from them.

 

Costs for last month, including hosting and backups were a total of  £83.00

 

The current balance in the account is therefore +£380.17

 

Thanks to the very kind gesture from Dave's sisters, this month and next months running costs are covered, with more in reserve. For all intents and purposes these months are 'On Dave' so anyone wanting to donate instead go and have a beer, enjoy a romantic McDonalds for two or stick it all on red at your local backstreet gambling house or whatever makes you happy, and raise a glass to Dave.

 

Thanks all.
