THE family of an Oswestry man who died suddenly have given back to the charity that helped them.

On December 30 last year, Jim Windsor suffered a heart attack, leaving his family and friends heartbroken without him.

Jim, 48 years old, was the son of the late Keith and Diane Windsor and had lived in Oswestry all his life. He had a love of vintage lorries and worked with a number of different transport companies throughout the years.

Following Jim’s death a close family friend, Nick Martindale, wanted to do something to help the family and to help with the costs of his funeral.

A crowd funding page was set up and very quickly the local community showed how highly Jim was thought of. the fundraising campaign raised £5290.00 was raised from the Crowd Funding page and cash donations.

Over £5,000 was raised by the campaign, which helped to give Jim the send-off he deserved. It was also decided that any monies left over would be donated to Hope House Children’s Hospices.

Hope House was a charity close to Jim’s heart as he and his family had received bereavement support from them when his two-year-old son Harvey died from a rare form of cancer.

Jim’s family have recently visited Hope House with a cheque for £1090.21
