    70 people now contributed, that is AMAZING!

    And almost reached the target, too.

    We are going to give Tidal a great send off...

    I don't check into TES very often these days so am sad to read that Tidal has died. I actually thought of him randomly last week and wondered how he was as although I did not speak to him personally over the years, I remembered a post where he described how hard it was to stay warm in the winter so he was obviously suffering difficult times at that point. I will head to the donation page and see what I can do.

    Oh he WAS a lovely man!

    And every bit extra helps, to help his family and show them how much we appreciated him.

    Best wishes

    Good morning all.

    Had an email from Tidal's sister, once again thanking the "wonderful, kind hearted Tessers who have contributed, toward the cost of Ade's funeral costs....I offer my heartfelt thanks for all that you have done and the very many wonderful people who have spoken so very highly of my brother Tidal. I am nearly sure he is seeing all of this and his heart is bursting with love."

    Our efforts are very much appreciated - and it's good to be able to help lessen the burden a little. So many have contributed, even when they haven't much themselves, so it's a big thank you from me too for your efforts, generosity and willingness to chip in.

    As already stated, so that we can try and get the money transferred over as soon as possible, I will be asking for withdrawal of funds after this coming Monday (9th). So if there's anyone out there who is in a position to donate and is willing to do so, here's the link:

    What a wonderful extra donation from Theo.

    Well, you lovely lovely people, we are over the line.

    By my calculations, once all the donations have cleared into the justgiving pot, and once the fees have been deducted, the amount going to Tidal's family should be just over £2k.

    YOU ARE ALL AMAZING!!!

    Thank you.

    Indeed thanks to @monicabilongame who has been doing all the financial admin on this appeal.

    And to all the Tessers, present and past, who have been saying their Final Farewell to our lovely Tidal.

    He would be after me with his pointy stick if he could see me calling him lovely!

    Just need just a few more extra donations to cover the JustGiving site admin fees, so that we can give Tidal's family at least that round £2k.

    Best wishes
