About the ELY Memorial Fund
The ELY Memorial Fund has been set up after Ange Tyler lost her only daughter & stepdaughter to Steve Tyler in a tragic car accident on 30th September 2010. However, their lives turned upside down that night when they were informed that Em had died at the scene of the accident.
Emma lived at home at 23 when she passed away. She had not written a Will or had any life insurance, consequently Emma died Intestate & any debts fell to her parents Ange & Steve. Suddenly they were faced with organising her funeral & not really knowing her wishes which was very upsetting. Furthermore, after three weeks they had the funeral bill of just under £5,000. They didn’t have enough money & to help them Emma’s Nan paid toward her beautiful funeral.
The ELY Memorial Fund doesn’t want families to struggle during these tragic circumstances. As a result, ELY was set up to provide a condolence gift as a one-off payment towards a basic funeral. A basic funeral of up to £2,000. This is to help families who live in Herefordshire who lose a son or daughter aged between 17 to 25 years in a car accident.
We hope that you’ll support this wonderful charity with us. You can do this by donating to our Virgin Money Giving fundraising page. As you’ve read above, it’s for a very worthy cause. Here’s the link:
