Duncan Mathieson Family Fund

Duncan was rushed to hospital early Saturday morning, 13th February, after a major seizure when his heart stopped, and he stopped breathing. He was initially in a medically induced coma in the Royal United Hospital in Bath. Duncan’s heart stopped for at least 35 minutes, possibly more. The medical experts don't know the reason and a plethora of tests have not revealed anything. Duncan sadly passed away on 24th February, 4 days after his 39th birthday. The reason for his passing is still unknown despite a post-mortem examination and subsequent medical investigations.

Duncan was in the process of moving his family into a newly refurbished home. There were some DIY bits and bobs that Duncan was looking forward to getting stuck into himself to reduce the escalating refurbishment costs as a result of unforeseen issues with the house. However, this is unfortunately no longer possible, and his family home cannot be completed as envisaged. Any financial pay outs to his family are also significantly delayed due to the unknown reason for Duncan’s passing.

The house needs to be completed as Anneen, Annabelle (23 months) and Callum (7 months) are currently at Duncan's parents until the house is habitable.

Plenty of people have offered to help out already (Thank you!). Some can give time, advice, moral support and others can help financially. Please help us, to help Duncan continue supporting his family!
