Thinking of you Christopher. Your Dad was always a friendly, helpful man and he clearly loved you so much. Kind wishes from The Cammells.

Great work setting up this crowd finder. When I hear the news of Anthony’s sad passing I was mortified, but hopefully this fund will go some way to helping Christopher out. I really enjoyed bumping ibto Anthony out and about in Goring, a funny, strong, and dependable man with as previously mentioned overwhelming amount of pride for his son. Rest in Peace Anthony, and all the best Christopher.

A light has gone out, a drum silenced. Goring is a quieter and poorer place since Anthony left us. This was a man totally devoted to his son, whose very being emanated warmth and love for his boy. It was not possible to have even the shortest conversation without being struck by the overwhelming sense of commitment to giving Christopher the best chance in life. Anthony was also astonishingly loud which meant you couldn’t avoid being party to it. He had known hardship and made a few decisions in life he wasn’t that proud of, but precisely because of this experience, he had a laser-like clarity about the future he wanted to give his son and demonstrated the grit and determination to make it happen. We feel privileged to have known Anthony, humbled and inspired by his love, and will always remember his good nature and the heavily discounted food from Tesco he shared out each Friday evening at the social club Christopher is growing into a bright, polite and respectful young man who will benefit forever from the values has father has instilled in him. But for now he needs our help and I hope that as a community we can all make a small contribution towards filling the gaping hole left by his Dad’s untimely departure. Sending a Birthday card, watching him play football or giving him a lift somewhere, anything that will allow him to continue on the journey Anthony dedicated himself to mapping out.
