View Full Version : Donations for Kazzie's chosen charity

12-02-10, 23:07
Hi all

I know people have wanted to donate money to Kazz's chosen charity and some people have already donated to cancer research.

I spoke with Roger today and he says that Kazz would like her donations to go to animal charities.

In particular he mentioned this one:

Saint Francis Animal Welfare in Hampshire.

The website is: http://sfaw.co.uk/

You can either donate directly on their website or I am happy to accept donations and then I can send them all in one go and explain who the donations are for etc.

You can use the donate button on here and let me know that it is for Kazz or you can PM me about sending cheques, internet banking, postal orders etc.

If you prefer then please donate to any local animal charity that you wish to.

The only thing that Roger did specifically ask is that people do not donate to the RSPCA as Kazz would not have wanted this for her own personal reasons.

Hi Guys. Just a thought but assuming the charity has signed up to the scheme then the www.JustGiving.com site can be a good way to organise something like this. We're using it as a an alternative to flowers for my Mum's funeral, and have done the same before.

Just hoping it helps.

Thanks Kev - I will have a look at that.

I got this reply from Saint Francis:

Hi Nicola,
We can keep a record of all the donations and advise you in due course. If the donors would like to write a short letter addressed FTAO the Secretary at the shelter (address on our website), mentioning that the donation is in memory of Kazzie, then I will ensure that the total is recorded in our accounts to send on to you later.
I have visited your site and will make a note of the address for future reference for anyone who may find it useful.
Kind regards

Thats brilliant,she would have been chuffed Im sure.xxxxx:hugs:

09-03-10, 20:56
I am so happy about the total donation for Kazzie's charity and like Yorkylover said, I am sure Kazzie would have been chuffed with the amount raised.
I looked at the website and I am now collecting used stamps for them, as requested on the website...I am mad about animals...anyway, not sure what happens with the used stamps? does anyone know?
It is nice that Kazzie chose that charity. Did she have any pets?

09-03-10, 21:33
hi Poppy xx

Kaz had 3 dogs - Vis, Oscar and Sheepus, and 2 cats - Snoopy catty cat and Tango and a tarantula called Terrance.

Thanks for replying, Nikk.
I bet Kazzie's pets are missing her too - maybe not the tarantula! but I bet the dogs and cats are.

10-03-10, 20:51
HI Poppy.

They are missing her loads. I have Terrance back with me but hes still shy about coming out as he recongised her when he was being held.

Hope you are ok.

Nikk xxx :hugs:

10-03-10, 21:01
Hi again
How are you Nikk? :hugs:
Kazzie's pets are bound to be missing her. Its so sad.
I don't know much about tarantulas but did Terrance really recognise her?
Thats so interesting. How many do you have?

10-03-10, 22:06
Hi Poppy.

Im fine thanks.

Spiders recognise people as mine comes over the tank when I go in the room never if Muim or My sister does. The know who they are safe with tioo. When I stayed there He wouldnt come out if I went to hold him. :\

I have 29 tarantulas, plus loads and laods and loads of other pets.

I am glad that Kazzie's husband is meeting up with you and the others to have lunch. The poor man must be devastated.
It is so good of you to be there for him.

I thought it was about time I stepped from the shadows I would like to thank everybody for their support and donations to my late wifes chosen charity and for all the thoughts and kind messages on the day of the funeral (Feb 12th) I know it was some time ago now but I expect you can appreciate my head has been in a bit of mess since she died.
I have joined this site and hope to stay in touch with all of you .

Thanks again for your support.
