This page has been set up as a group effort by all communities, as Alex was a dear friend to many.
Connie Bruno, a friend of Alex's said: "He was a great friend and help in the Portuguese community.
"He worked hard every single day."
Connie added: "The page is for people helping other people.
"Today it is to help Alex, tomorrow it may be to help somebody else.
"You never know what is around the corner."
Many shops within Grantham have joined in the effort to help give Alex the tribute he deserves, and these shops include Sandra’s Corner restaurant, Angelos Coffee, Caféfe , O Alentejano and the Tinel Seafood & Grill restaurant.
A 84-year-old man who lived in the house with Alex still remains in hospital.
