In memory of Carolyn Barnes

1968 - 2019

So far we have raised


This page is for all the family. Carolyn was mum to Tina, Nicolle and Kirsty; partner to Allan, daughter to Chris and Terry; sister to Julia and me. She had many roles and many friends, and her loss will leave a gap in many lives.
The three of us sisters are like chalk, cheese and whatever the third thing is. We didn't always get on; we didn't always have much in common. But sisters are sisters. Carolyn was sparky, gutsy, stubborn, tough at times. She was private about her illness, but fought it with guts and determination as you would expect. While ill she made hundreds of hats for refugees, earning her the nickname of the Mad Hatter - one that suited her well. We will all miss her in our own ways but for me she will live on as the Mad Hatter and we get comfort from thinking of refugees wearing warm, colourful hats that she made. Helen

We are so sorry to hear about Carolyn's sad death. We remember the first time we saw you all-3 little girls in the rain with three little brollies up. Our thoughts are very much with you all.
