Fundraising Appeal to Pay for Hannah’s Funeral

Jannine Silver has launched a fundraising appeal to help pay for Hannah Gibbs’ funeral who tragically died after going missing on 13 October.

Hannah left her family home in Gainsborough to go for a walk and she was found in the river, 19 days later on 1 November near Marlow.  The search to find Hannah involved police divers, Oxfordshire Lowland Search and Rescue and many volunteers including Henley Deputy Mayor Councillor David Eggleton, her neighbour.

Jannine who has been a friend of Hannah’s for over 20 years pays tribute to Hannah, “Hannah devoted her life not only to being a brilliant mummy and providing a happy home for her children but also to helping others.  She was always at the end of the phone for anyone who needed help or support, a smiling face or a cuddle which always seemed to lift a thousand woes and often giving up her time to participate in numerous fundraising and charity events raising awareness or sponsorship to causes close to her heart.”

“I am launching this page with permission from her children asking for donations to help with the costs of Hannah’s funeral, taking a burden off the shoulder of 2 young and beautiful children who have lost their mum far to early. Everyone who knew Hannah knew she would give her last pound to help someone else, lets repay the favour in her memory. Even a few pounds will make a huge difference please.”

The appeal is hoping to raise £5,000 and is currently at £3,800.
