Warmest wishes from Josie Thomson

Josie, William, Elizabeth, Lisa, Gracie and Tilly;

Would like to thank you all for coming to say a last farewell to our darling Bruce. We really were very touched to see so many of you, and you were all so generous in your donations.
A sum of £500 was collected and was shared between Bruce's chosen charities. You are all quite special people.
