With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our friend Tavita Antoni Karika.

On the 29th of April 2021 Tavita took his last breath and with that our hearts.

If you had the pleasure of knowing Tavita you will know just how difficult this is for his family, friends and all who loved him.

We are wanting to raise as much as we can to help Tavita’s family with funeral costs and getting our boy home.

Booking payments  8 May 2021

Thank you all so much for your kind donations. Tavita’s family are blown away by the response and are grateful you have eased the financial impact losing Tavita will have on them.

Due to myself and a few other close friends making bookings and finalising details for the service that require sign off we are changing the release of the donations you have made from Rachel Bower, to Dan Peck.

I can assure you the money is going to the same places, we have just made it easier on Rachel not having to sign documents and make the payments for the service throughout the week so she can just grieve and heal and not have this burden on her shoulders. Dan has already made payments for certain things and will continue to do so.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Again thank you all so very much.
