I would like to introduce you to this amazing man, Darren Ratcliffe. A friend, brother, uncle, and dearly loved son who has been taken away from us way too soon.

Darren had just turned 35 and was celebrating his birthday with his partner in South Africa, he passed away on the 2/01/2018. The reason for his death is not yet known, other than he had a stomach bug that developed quickly. Darren's partner, Justin was with him when he died.

Darren's mum Trish has been working with the Australian Embassy to get Darren home. Details of the funeral will be advised shortly.

For those who were fortunate enough to have known Darren; he will be remembered for that bold smile, endless amount of positive enthusiasm, that can do attitude towards everything and his great ambitions in life. The privilege of his friendship meant knowing he would give his all for you. We now ask for you to do the same and help him return home.

Im organising funds on behalf of Darren's family to support them in a time of need. Any generous donations made here will be used by his family to cover the cost of bringing him back home, the funeral service and any unforseen expenses. Your kind donations will help his family bare the pain of putting him to rest without the additional financial stress.

Our love and sympathy goes to Trish and Colin, Justin and all of Darren's family and friends.

Kind regards
