Thank you for the very kind messages that many of you have sent – they are a real source of comfort at a very difficult time.
There will be a memorial service for Bart at 2pm on Tuesday 15 December at Chelsea Old Church, on the Embankment (SW3 5DQ), followed by a reception afterwards at the adjoining Petyt Hall.
Bart left quite detailed instructions as to the kind of send-off he wanted to have, and is very keen that this be a celebration.
Bart requested that people don’t send flowers, and that any donations go to Medical Aid for Palestinians [http://www.map-uk.org/donate/donate] or Kidney Cancer UK [http://kcuk.org/donate/]
I understand that many of you are far away and won’t be able to make it.
