After registration is complete, they receive an email confirmation that contains useful information about how to control gambling behaviors. The self-exclusion process usually becomes effective within 24 hours, but if players have already deposited funds into an online casino registered in the United Kingdom, a request for self-exclusion won t automatically return their withdrawable balance.

Matthew shined bright.

Matthew was a renowned sculptor who has left an extraordinary legacy of work in Australia and around the world. He was brilliant and one of the most accomplished sculptors in Australia; he was compassionate and had a rare generosity of spirit.

Matthew was loved and cherished by his partner, children, family and wide circle of friends. He was a gifted creative artist, a deeply connected friend, and most importantly, he was known for his deep love for his family: partner Freya, four beautiful children Arabella (10), Lulu (9), Polly (6) and Hugo (4), mother, father and siblings.

Matthew Harding Family Support Fund

Matthew was an incredibly creative, prolific and successful artist, however, he struggled financially all his life in pursuit of his art. His family struggled along with him and had many ups and downs. Despite the financial stresses they thrived as a family living in a modest home full of love and joy – all sleeping in one room.

As single mother Freya now faces the near impossible task of providing financial, emotional and physical support to her four young children.

A GoFundMe campaign has been created - if you can, please consider donating to this beautiful family.
