  • Jade undertakers give £25k funeral fees to her sons

    Jade Goody will be laid to rest this Saturday, and in a touching act of kindness, the funeral home planning her burial has promised to donate the £25,000 fees to her two sons.

    FA Albin & Sons, an undertakers based in South London, has organised the service to guidelines set out by Goody herself, who died on Mother’s Day. She planned the funeral in the weeks leading up to her death, which will take place in Buckhurst Hill, Essex.

    Speaking to the Daily Mail, the company’s director, Barry Albin-Dyer, confirmed that they would be donating their fees to the trust fund Goody set up for her young sons, and will also be giving money to her cervical cancer charity.

    The two boys, Freddie, four, and Bobby, five, will not attend Saturday’s ceremony though. In an attempt to escape the media glare, their father, Jeff Brazier, is taking them to Australia.

    Those that will be in attendance include many of Jade’s friends from the entertainment world. Richard and Judy, Kerry Katona, Jamelia and the Sugababes are all expected.

    Attendees at the service will receive special edition candles, featuring an image of Jade and the words, ‘An ordinary Woman, an extraordinary life.’
