An Angelic Tribute for Farley Kidner Fills the Skies.


share close

It was reported around 2 days ago from the Express & Star about a beautiful tribute put in place for 17 year old Farley Kidner, who passed away in his sleep. These tributes included not only floral arrangements presented, but photographs as well as balloons let off in memory of Farley at his old school of Coppice Performing Arts School in Wednesfield, Wolverhampton.

The tributes were attended by many who knew Farley Kidner, including his family, his friends, former classmates, teachers as well as current pupils studying at the school. They stated the tributes were in honour to remember his life.

Before letting off the balloons with personalised messages from each person, there was a huge chant from all: “We love you Farley, we do.” with applause following.

Coppice School has stated they will be following up on the event with a number of fundraising events in honour of Farley as well as in support for his family and memory.

There is a GoFundMe page available for the public to consider a donation towards Farley Kidner’s memorial, being ran by Jacob Ojelay, a friend of Farley himself. The GoFundMe is filled with many expressing condolences, memories as well as support for the family.

The original goal of £1,000 was met and now the GoFundMe is at £12,563. Losing a family member, a friend, an old student/classmate is never easy for anyone and many can argue that Farley Kidner was loved by many and will always be remembered by the people of Wednesfield, Wolverhampton and even, the West Midlands.
