Following my post a few days ago where I shared the awful news that Gareth Perrins-Seedhouse had passed away, I received a lovely and very kind email from Mick Roseblade, a close friend of the family, who’s also asked me to publicise the arrangements for Gareth’s funeral.
Hope you can help by publicizing details of Gareth Seedhouse’s funeral:
Have been informed that the funeral will be on next Thursday – 31st July 2014.
The programme of events is as follows:
2pm Service held at St Johns Church, High Street, Walsall Wood
3pm Service at Streetly Crematorium
This will be followed by a gathering at Pelsall Labour Club, Church Lane, Pelsall. (This is on the green alongside St Michael’s Church.)
Hopefully we can give him a good send off.
I have been awestruck by the genuine love and affection shown throughout the local community for Gareth, and at the sheer volume and sincerity of condolences and care for his family. I know his loss was particularly keenly felt at Walsall Wood Football Club, where Gareth was remembered publicly before their last match.
Gareth was a great man and will be sadly missed.
I appealed for donations on behalf of Gareth Perrins-Seedhouse back in 2012, when, despite his ongoing and grave illness, he ran Shenstone Fun Run, raising a huge total of £7,355.40 for the Teenage Cancer Trust. That appeal has now expired, but you can donate to the Teenage Cancer Trust directly here.
