£10,000 to bring home Warrington man who died after Spanish balcony fall
9:34pm Sunday 8th September 2013 in News
AN appeal has been launched to help raise £10,000 to bring home a Warrington man who fell to his death from a balcony in Benidorm.
Alan 'Bundy' Clare died on Friday while on a stag do in the popular Spanish holiday resort.
The 35-year-old former Martin Dawes employee had not taken out travel insurance prior to going abroad, and his family have been faced with further anguish after learning that they need to raise thousands of pounds to have his body flown home.
Now friends and colleagues of the Bank Quay Bulls rugby league player are appealing for donations to help raise the £10,000 needed to bring him back to his family.
Generous donations have already been pouring in following appeals on social media, while collections are being held at pubs and businesses across the town.
Tributes have also been paid to the former Martin Dawes worker.
Commenting on our website, jojom83 said: "R.I.P Bundy. It is an absolute pleasure to have been your friend, your Facebook wall shows how many lives you have touched. You will be missed by many but you will never be forgotten. Sleep tight."
