Our Gentle Giant & Big Dave

$6,990 donated
Given by 74 generous donors in 14 days

To support Sue and her whanau with funeral and ongoing costs for Big Dave's funeral.

Dave Rains has left a huge hole in many hearts, many lives and many communities both nationally and globally. Dave was one of the most giving men whether it was through his work or just home life with his caring nature. For the thousands of lives he has touched and helped in some way we would love to give back to him and his whanau.

The cost of a funeral, as many would know, is very expensive. Also, all the hidden costs behind the scenes.

We are wanting to support our beloved Sue, and Dave's soul mate, during this tough time. Please help by giving a koha towards this gentle giant and our Big Dave.

It was a honour to meet Dave and hear about his journey and the way God was working in his life, but also great sadness to hear of his passing.
