Tragedy In Memory Family Support

Laura and her boys have lost their beloved Leslie in a tragic incident while out enjoying his favourite past time swimming.

Leslie Gelberger a much loved husband, father, friend and teacher at Westlake girls school. Was an avid outdoors man who lived for his family.

Laura and the boys need financial support during this trying time as Leslie's teaching job was their only source of income. It is hard at times of tragedy to think beyond the pain, however Laura and her boys need ALL YOUR SUPPORT at this time.

Use of funds

As Leslie was the only source of income for his family at the time of his untimely death, the funds raised will go to Laura to help her continue to raise their boys during this tragic time.
