Tom Bennett’s (Jom Pan’s) Send Off

10635749_10204560488910648_2033915724668348420_nTom’s family would like to invite Tom’s friends and friends of the Bennett family to his funeral and wake on the 4th September at Cruggan Farm, Portloe.

This will be a joyful celebration of Tom’s life so please wear whatever makes you feel happy!

Please get to Cruggan for 3.30 ready for the service which will begin at 4pm. After the service ample refreshments will be provided and we will be able to sit down together to chat, eat, share our memories of Tom and listen to the choir Tom used to sing in.

Ben’s band (Truro City Band!) will also be playing. As night falls there will be a live band and some of Tom’s favourite music played until midnight. For those who would like to stay overnight there will be camping available at the field.

Practicalities: This is a family friendly event, children are most welcome. The postcode for the location is TR2 5PS. There will be clear signs from Harris’s garage. There will be plenty of parking at the field where the event is being held and space for those wishing to camp.

We have had donations of barrels of beer so there will be a small bar serving this but please bring any additional refreshments you would like. This gathering is a funeral and wake, not a fund raising event. However we would like people to come forward with ideas about what sort of fund would best serve Tom’s memory and ethos.

Please get in touch with April and Ben if you are thinking of attending so that they are able to ensure there is enough food for everyone.
