The Story

This is a crowdfunder appeal to raise funds for Robert Dellar’s funeral wake. The costs of the undertaker and the crematorium are being met by his dad, but there are other expenses – for catering and the venue, for printed materials such as the funeral programme and the mailing out of invitations, and local taxis for those who require them. We estimate this will cost around £3000. We appreciate this is a lot of money, we’re just asking you to give whatever you can, to give Robert the send-off he deserves. Any excess raised will be split between Robert’s favourite charities, MHRN, Kindred Minds & The Field.

Throughout his life, Robert worked tirelessly for others, asking nothing in return. His relentless energy was most notable in the field of mental health, where he worked for a quarter of a century for chapters of MIND, helping to set up patients’ councils, Mad Pride & MHRN along the way. He produced some amazing fanzines, and was an avid promoter of many bands. He was creative, giving, open, understanding, always. He was found dead at his home the day after his 52nd birthday, and his sudden passing leaves his partner Shirley, stepdaughter Sophia, and countless others, utterly bereft.

Re PayPal: I'm now informed that you can donate money, we just can't withdraw it (yet). So if you tried & failed earlier, please do keep trying, and thanks again for your patience.

If you've been having trouble donating over the past day or so, first, thank you, and second, there is a glitch in PayPal which means they place a limit on donations within a certain time frame, as a safeguard against money laundering. When setting up this page I had to choose between PayPal and a payment processor I hadn't heard of, so I chose PayPal – this also means that even if you choose to donate by card, PayPal is still the payment processor. Hopefully this should all be sorted out today. Please be patient and watch this space, and thank you for that patience.
