Ashley (Ash) Firth passed away on 26th January 2018 suddenly. Since then myself and his girls have been overwhelmed with the love and support and out pouring of love for our dear Ash. Many people have asked how they can make a tribute to him, so we are setting up this page in his memory and hope that we can raise enough to help others. We take comfort in knowing that Ash didn't suffer as so many do when diagnosed with Leukaemia. Thank you so much for each and every card, letter, message we have received. He was a very loved man. We miss him.

Thank you all so much for your kind donations. It’s a fabulous total. He would have been amazed.

20.06.2022 We’ve just had Fathers Day to cope with again and this year it was tough. However today we’ve donated the money from the talk at Denton, Manchester and the donations from that day from the lovely ladies, and continue to sell 2nd hand lacemaking equipment. We thank you all for your generosity and support 💙 Josephine Firth
