Phil Portwood writes:

Mum’s funeral will be on the 22nd March.  We have decided that we will only have family flowers at the funeral, but that those wishing to make a donation in Mum’s memory do so to the Pre-School Learning Alliance charity.  Under its previous name of the Pre-School Playgroups Association, the PSLA (PPA) was one of the greatest of the many causes in Mum’s life. Such donations can be sent to Philip, given privately at the funeral, or donated online nationally.

We would also be grateful, for planning purposes, if you could let us know if you are intending to come to the funeral, the cremation and/or the reception afterwards. 

Can we finally warmly thank all the many of you who have contacted us over the last few weeks to give your support, condolences and memories of Mum. They all mean a lot to us.
