Facebook fundraiser in memory of Dad
Rick Footman decided to organise a fundraiser on Facebook in memory of his dad and raised over £1,000 for bibic.
Rick tells us more;
“I decided to raise money for bibic in memory of my Dad, Buster Footman, who recently passed away. He was a physiotherapist at Southend United FC and Bristol City FC.
Dad had done charity work during his life, raising over £100,000 for different charities, including bibic, so it was fitting that I chose bibic in his memory.
Those that did not know my Dad would be amazed at the things he did to raise money, these included: –
Rowing the Thames from Tower bridge to Southend pier,
Walking from Lands’ End to John O`Groats,
Abseiling down the Clifton Gorge in Bristol,
…and many others, including climbing Mt Kilimanjaro at the age of 65.
He was a well-loved member of the Bristol community and people would stop and chat with him wherever he went.
I think it’s a fitting way to remember a loved one by doing something for a charity in their name, and I would recommend that anyone who wants to remember a loved one should think of doing the same . Please help this wonderful cause”.
Our sincere thanks to Rick, his family and his friends for such a generous and fitting tribute to Buster Footman.
