My name is Caroline and I have the privilege to be the cousin of Charlotte Bartrum who is married to Andrew Bartrum.

In a tragic turn of events on Sunday 20th June Andy was training with the Golden Oldies Touch Rugby team in Tauranga when he collapsed suffering a massive heart attack at the young age of 41yrs old. Andy is a well loved PE Teacher and the head of PE for a local college in Tauranga. This has come as a very big shock for everyone that knows this great guy. Now comes with this is alot of stress on Charlotte and her young family of Xavier 6yrs and Aeda 2yrs. Charlotte and Andy do so much for their community, church, friends and family I think it's now only fair that this is returned. Charlotte needs all the financial help she can get while Andy is being prepared for open heart surgery and numerous scans on his brain and other organs of his body.

I please ask you to help this beautiful family in need, and take away the uncalled stress and worrying about money at this hard time and let Charlotte just be able to there for her husband and young children. Prayers for Andy ❤❤
