A FUNDRAISING page has been set up to help finance the challenge of returning Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH) nurse, Barclay Mason back to New Zealand.

As has been well documented, Barclay died after contracting Covid-19 whilst working at PAH.

Members of his family back in New Zealand appeared on television this week saying how desperate they are to see him return.

Naturally, travel bans due to the pandemic have made this very difficult at the moment.

Two nurses, Sarah Lewis and Carly Taplin started the gofundme page.


It reads:

“It is with desperate sadness that we are writing these words. 

As you all know our dear friend   Barclay Mason died suddenly.

“We can’t believe we are writing this stuff about him, it  just isn’t right….this world is wicked sometimes, causing so much grief and utter sadness.

“Everyone feels beyond sad and completely empty, we all loved him from the bottom of our hearts.

An incredible man, who had the most kindest and calming nature, he never had a bad word to say about anyone or anything……an extraordinary human being.

Lets give him the send off he deserves and get him on his final journey back home.

Rest in peace Barclay, we are so lucky to have had you in our lives Xx

It is estimated that repatriation cost could be 7-10k, any monies over will be given to his family ThankYou xx”
