My sons Gofundme raised £6,966

I’m absolutely blown away by the support and generosity of Ruperts friends, family, colleagues and everyone else that helped us raise money for my sons Funeral and Catering costs. Ruperts mother informed me that the funds raised were less than the total cost of the final bills, that’s even after she got some of it for free (perks of her job). I had no idea funerals were this expensive. Meanwhile, Ruperts mother and his step father have very generously made up the shortfall. Thanks again to everyone that helped out in any way they could.

Please note that donations for this gofundme have now be turned off at the request of Ruperts mother and step father.

UPDATE: Rupert’s mother and step father have had the page shutdown. According to Gofundme support, it was an unauthorised fundraiser and only the beneficiary (Mark) is allowed to put it back online. Even though the page was no longer taking donations and I’d cooperated with Louise and Mark by removing my post about attending a UKSOBS.org meeting here in Stockport. Even though I’m literally Rupert’s father.
