On the outside Nick Jones appeared to be an average, every day, hard working, family man. Unfortunately, Nick was diagnosed with terminal heart failure. Nick’s doctors explained that the condition was rare and that there was nothing they could do for him.
Nick, being Nick, wasn’t willing to take this lying down or without a fight. The thought of his loved ones mourning him after he’d gone, encouraged him to do something to ensure that they’d still be looked after when he no longer could. That’s when he thought of the charity to help children and family suffering from loss. He decided the charity was not about him but about the family of the bereaved. Nick was, and all the team are, passionate about offering love and support to all families involved in bereavement.
Nick was hoping to create publicity through various organised events to help to raise awareness of the families that are left behind to deal with bereavement. The courage and strength it took him to continue fighting and not give up is the very essence of what the Nick Jones Foundation for Bereaved Children embodies and he aimed for this to continue when he passed. The charity is his legacy, his family’s pride and our inspiration.
Unfortunately Nick passed away in November 2020 after suffering a heart attack. Nick will be remembered through his actions and of course his Foundation ’The Nick Jones Foundation for Bereaved Children.
The Foundation has recently helped, and will continue to assist, local families who have suffered a bereavement. Donations can still be made on Nick’s Go Fund Me page: https://www.gofundme.com/NickJonesFoundation
