We invite you to contribute to ensuring that the legacy of Michael ‘Asher’ Thaxter is never ending and befitting of his beautiful spirit.

Following the sudden loss of our veteran and very valued presenter Asher (Michael) Thaxter, all of us at Ujima Radio would like to extend our deepest condolences to Asher’s friends and family.

His shows were greatly enjoyed by all the Bristol community and those that listened further afield. Asher played an important role in the radio station for the last 15 years, as well as training radio skills to new presenters. We are all still reeling from his sudden departure and continue to carry out a range of tributes on air, social media and in person. Ujima Radio broadcast a programme in tribute to Asher on 11th November.This show can be listed back from this link: Ujima Radio – Code of the Streets – DJ Style at Ujima Radio (https://shorturl.at/nzHLS)

One of the things that we would also like to support is to ensure that our beloved Brother receives the best celebration of his life in ways that would be pleasing to him and his loved ones.

Many of us know his tastes in music, his lifestyle, sense of humour, his values and the greatly humble character that he was, and we sorely miss.

With the funds raised we wish to support the family financially with the funeral and associated costs.

So, with the blessing of his family, we would like to contribute to honouring this remarkable person with a collection and we invite you to contribute to ensuring that the legacy of Asher is never ending and befitting of his beautiful spirit.

Please support by contributing whatever you’re able to give.

Thank you
