Our friend John Banks passed away very suddenly on the 22nd of September. We (his friends and remaining family) don't have very much money between us so thought that this would be the best way to raise some in order to give him a good send off. We obviously don't have a lot of time in which to raise the money for his funeral as we are not sure how long the morgue will take care of his body for us, but we at least have to try to get as much as we can. We are asking if people can please donate some money towards his funeral, no matter how little, so that we can give John the send off that he deserves. He was taken so suddenly, at only 39 years of age and we are yet to find out the cause of his death but have been assured that he did not suffer. John was the most unselfish person you will ever meet. He was always there when you needed him, whether it be for a chat, a shoulder to cry on, to help with some DIY or to do the obligatory hangover food run down to the chippie on his bike. He was like a brother to myself, Marvin and Oliver (the people setting up this page) and we will miss him every single day. As will all of his friends. Please, please help us. It would mean the world.
