Joshua Hartley Memorial fund

On November 1st 2019 our hearts were shattered as we learnt the devastating news. The most beautiful soul, Joshua Hartley was tragically taken from us in a car accident. His life was stolen from him not long after celebrating his 20th birthday. 

Josh left behind his mum alone caring for his 2 younger siblings. Austin and Poppy, only 10 and 1. He adored his little family more than anything in this world. He also left so so many of his friends, who have proven themselves tobe true family in all our eyes. The support andlove shown by everyone has been overwhelming. The flowers, notes and presents left at the crash site, and the balloon release organised in Josh’s memory, are only a few of the amazing contributions to show what a wonderful person he really was, and what he meant to each and every person. 

The funeral was so beautiful, and again the turn out of people there to say their goodbyes shows how many people lives he touched. He was laid to rest with his grandad, who nearly 1 year to the day of Josh’s death had also sadly passed away. We can have comfort in the fact they both now have each other.

However were all now faced with the overwhelming cost of an appropriate memorial headstone. This is the least and final thing we can do for Josh as a family. It is so important for all of us to have a special place for us to go see him and visit. More so for his younger sibling, who we must remind each and every day what a wonderful, caring and loving big brother they had.

A absolute legend in everyone’s eyes. 

Every pound or penny counts, all donations are truely appreciated. Thanks xx
