Tauranga mum's reluctant plea for help

A Tauranga mother-of-three is struggling after recent death of her husband.

Estelle Coleman has been through a lot recently, and she's reaching out for help as she is struggles to pay funeral costs.

The funeral costs are a result of late husband Bruce's lack of life or funeral insurance.      

Losing her husband to suicide in late January this year, Estelle is now tasked with raising three young children on her own, while paying off the rest of her late husband's funeral costs.

After payments that have already been made by herself and her family, Estelle is left with $4502.49 to pay for Bruce's funeral.

She has reluctantly set up a Givealittle page, hoping the community can help her through this difficult time.

“Any donations no matter how small will be very appreciated,” says Estelle.

“The funds will be used to pay for the remaining funeral bills and to help pay for grief counselling for our children.”
