Neil Robinson passed away on Tuesday in the Algarve, in Portugal while on holiday with his children Gwendoline and Kaya. To those of who you who knew him you will know I am not exaggerating when I say he was an incredibly unique and eccentric soul who has definitely left his mark wherever he trod and always strove to break the mold whenever possible!
This fundraising effort is to help Fran, who now has the daunting task of bringing the children back to Sierra de Estrela and off managing day to day life. If you know Fran, you'll know she seems serenely on top of things. If you know her better, you might understand what she faces as decisions need to be made for the family, knowing now she must support them all. I'm asking your help to take the pressure off her as much as we can, and to cover her necessary break from her part-time teaching.
Eventually the family will need more of our support as they decide their best way forward, with that in mind I have set this fundraising campaign for the short term ending in 2 weeks time at Candlemas/Imbolc. it will cover immediate costs in the region of 2000 euro, and reduce the stress they are surely under. There is however no limit to the amount of this fundraiser so please don't wait for the second round if you feel you'd like to help more.
