MUCH LOVED VOLUNTEER HAS SADLY PASSED AWAY

Geoffery Parker
 
We are very saddened to hear of the passing of Geoffrey Parker, a friend of our organisation and long-time volunteer of the annual Christmas Day Dinner Event.
You may recognise him pictured, as he had previously featured as part of our Christmas Appeal campaigns.

Below is a tribute from lead Christmas Day coordinators Sophie Greener and Matt Cattell:

"We are so devastated by this sad news - Geoffrey was part of our furniture. He wasn't happy unless he was dashing around helping in any way he could!
He brought so much joy.

"I know that there will be many people asking after him this Christmas, and it will be hard to share the news. We're so grateful for the joy, support and
love that he brought over decades of volunteering. We will miss his smile and hugs dearly, but he will always be in our hearts.

"Our thoughts and condolences go out to his friends and family. Thank you Geoffrey."
