We are sad to inform you that Bene Cooper, who may have been our oldest and longest serving volunteer, has sadly died.
She continued to attend the shop on Mondays and produce knitwear for us to sell until last year when at 95 years of age she decided it was time to step down and let those a little younger take her place. She will be sadly missed.
She had lived independently until some 7 weeks ago when she was admitted to the hospital she had supported for so many years, and she passed away there peacefully on 8 July.
Her funeral will be held at the United Church, Croft Rd at 2pm on Wednesday 3rd August 2016.
