Only just spotted this comment on Facebook, but a fundraiser has been set up to help with the funeral costs of Lawrence Casey, the hero Dad who sadly died after jumping into Bude canal to try to save his disabled daughter. See our previous article here. So far, £525.00 has been raised towards a £2,500 goal.
On Go Fund Me, it says:
My name is Jack Fry and I came across a post on a Plymouth selling page for a van being sold due to a bereavement; as I read further this was posted by a gent called Ben Casey and he was selling due to his father passing away after jumping into a canal in Bude after his disabled daughter had lost control of her mobility scooter. Unfortunately Lawrence (86 years old) passed away after the incident.
His daughter is recovering at home The money raised will go direct to the family to be gifted towards any funeral costs and the rest to Jessica who Lawrence cared for. We look to end the fundraising on the 17th September. It won’t allow me to post the story but it can be found on all news sites.
However big or small your donation will help. I have spoken to Mr Casey’s son and he is very grateful for this being arranged. I will start things off personally with £250 and within my businesses I own I will collect donations over the next week and also donate this into the fund.
