Bernard's life was tragically taken on Saturday 26 September 2020 in a downhill mountain biking crash in Nelson. He has left behind his partner Kristie and his nearly four year old son Emrys. They were a tight little family and loved each other so much. Bernard was a very hands on, loving and caring dad with a great sense of humor who always had a smile on his face.

His loss will leave a gaping hole in their lives forever, and right now we would like to be able to help Kristie in this difficult time as she goes forward with supporting their little boy on her own, and so that she doesn't have to worry about going back to work straight away whilst still grieving.

There is no obligation to donate but even if you can spare anything, even if it's just $1, every cent helps to go toward trying to make their life just a little bit easier and would be massively appreciated.
