A fund to help raise the costs for the funeral of a gym owner who died suddenly has been launched.

Daniel Willgoss, who was 25 and ran Mammoth Power Gym on Whapload Road, Lowestoft, died suddenly last week.

The JustGiving page, set up by family friend Faye Churchill after a number of people asked how to help with funeral costs, has raised nearly £500 in only two days.

Daniel’s mother, Sue Willgoss, said the funeral is due to take place on Friday, July 27 at 3pm at the Waveney Crematorium in Ellough, followed by a celebration of Daniel’s life at Rookery Park Golf Club on Beccles Road, with everyone welcome.

She added that the funeral cortege will be leaving from Mammoth Power Gym before heading out past the family’s pub, The Carlton, to the crematorium.

Mrs Willgoss asked for no flowers to be sent with any donations to go to the soon-to-be established #liftloudfordanny fund.
