New News in Regards to the Funeral...

This just in from Neil Marr:

I've just been sent this round robin note of funeral arrangements for Tim and his family's request for a charity donation rather than flowers. I thought you might like to see the message and to pass it on or use it as you think best.
Fondest wishes.

*****Please find attached the directions for Monday, for those attending Tim's funeral*****

The family will meet at the Chapel of Rest at approximately 2.45 to have a quiet moment of reflection and to allow the children a final chance to say goodbye.

The next section of the day will commence at 3.30pm at Burnley Crematorium, and all who knew Tim are welcome to attend. This is followed by an invitation to join Tim's family for a drink and some light refreshments at St Mary's Chambers in Rawtenstall (Michael & Fiona's home town).

Hopefully this will allow us all to share our own memories of Tim. It is also an opportunity for anyone who would like to say a few words about Tim, do so. All the family ask is, that no longer than 10 minutes are spent on speeches and that Susan, Michael & Fiona have some previous indication of any speakers.

It would also be greatly appreciated if anyone hoping to attend could let us know by Wednesday evening if possible, for catering purposes.

It is requested that flowers are from family only, but that donations to Rossendale Hospice, in memory of Tim would be gratefully received. We hope to raise £1000 for the hospice, as this will provide Hospice at Home Care for one patient. It will also allow us to have a Gold Leaf on the "Giving Tree" in Tim's name.

At a later date, Tim's remains will be planted under an English Oak Tree in the 'Life for a Life' Project, in a beautifully designated area overlooking the Rossendale Valley.

All the above details meet exactly with Tim's own requests - he even chose the music he would like played, in conjunction with his children Michael & Fiona.

Perhaps we could depend on you to forward on this on to anyone you feel would be interested?

Kindest Regards
Jean Smith (Susan Field's sister)

Dear Tim Field Family and Friends,

The sad news about Tim Field's passing has just reached me and it is with shock and emotion that I write this. My condolences to the family and all those who knew Mr. Field.

Though I did not know Mr. Field personally, and only had met him once at a conference, I had the fortune of being helped by his work on bullying through his website. Because of the information his website provided I was able to recover from my own traumatic workplace situation. It was a lifesaver in many ways.

There are many grateful people out there who have been given hope by Mr. Field's information and passionate work in the area, and I for one appreciate what his has done, it has touched and benefitted so many. Thank you Mr. Field.

Could the directions to the funeral and information on how to make donations be posted on the website or sent to me directly? I can not seem to find information (contact details, addresses etc) this on the page or anywhere else. Thank you.
