The Reason

The Reason

We work together to make our cause known, to reach out to other groups who share our vision. Whether you’re ready to lend a hand at one of our activities or have photos or articles to share about a recent event, here’s the place to do it.

The objectives of the Fund are:

· To support the children in the provision of current and potential future educational needs; and

· To fill the educational funding void created by the loss of a parent.


The history behind the fund


It took the news of Mike’s faith and courage in his fight against Cancer early in 2012 to galvanize old school mates into a reunion of sorts. Those that were in PE got together, those that weren’t were reconnected via Facebook, email and telephone.

At that stage, Mike had been battling Cancer for approximately two years, yet what immediately struck us was that his zest for life was just as contagious as it was back at school. It also became obvious that Mike’s ongoing medical bills and future treatment needs were astronomical and in May 2012 the Michael Hoskins Giddy Fund was established to assist.

The Most Amazing Pic

During the year that followed we got to know Mike the husband, Mike the dad, Mike the friend, Mike the hero and Mike the inspiration. We firmly believe that we all are placed on earth with a purpose; God has a plan for us all. We have no doubt that Mike fulfilled his purpose which was amongst other things to touch and inspire those around him. For this reason, The Michael Hoskin’s Giddy Fund will live on in honour of Michael’s legacy by supporting young families impacted by the passing of a parent.
