Matthew's Funeral Arrangements
I know you don't know me or Matthew personally but I thought I would share the details of Matthew's funeral here.
Matthew wanted us to raise money for both Beating Bowel Cancer and Cancer Research UK, so hopefully our efforts will help others. Thank you so much for all your support throughout Matthew's illness, I don't know what I would have done without you all. xxx
It is with deep sadness that the family and I announce the peaceful passing of our beloved Matthew, age 31, on Wednesday 3rd January 2018 after a long and incredibly courageous battle with bowel cancer.
Matthew’s funeral service will be held at St James' Church, Rowledge, Farnham on Wednesday 24th January at 2pm followed by the wake at Blacknest Golf & Country Club, Alton.
We would like your help in creating a memory book which captures your special moments with Matthew, so please bring along a printed photo to add to our keepsake.
Family flowers only please, there will be an offertory box on the day for donations in Matthew’s memory for Beating Bowel Cancer and Cancer Research UK. Alternatively donations can be sent c/o Thorne Leggett, 8-10 The St, Wrecclesham, Farnham, GU10 4PR Tel: 01252 715 520.
Everyone is welcome, and in the words of Matthew the dress code is “No scruffy people”.
