Many members of the Haileybury Community have asked for details of the forthcoming Memorial Service to celebrate the life of Alessandro Pomfret who sadly died this Summer.
The details of all services are now set out below.
Alessandro's funeral will take place at 11.30am on Saturday 1st September 2018 in St James' Roman Catholic Church, Spanish Place, W1. This service is open to anyone.
Alessandro's parents have decided that they would like to leave the decision about a Memorial Service until after his funeral has taken place. So, his Memorial Service will now not take place on the 15th September as planned, but at a later date. I will keep you informed about when this will be.
Quiet Reflective Service
We are mindful of the affect that Alessandro's death will have of those who knew him, and we will provide support and counsel within school. We plan to have a simple and quiet service in Chapel at 7.15pm on Wednesday 5th September 2018 to give the opportunity to remember Ally, to light a candle in his memory, and to be still.
Flowers and Donations
The family have requested family flowers only, and that any donations should be sent to aid the work of our international and ongoing charity, the Haileybury Youth Trust using the following link: https://www.haileybury.com/alessandro
On behalf of the family, may I thank everyone who has supported the Pomfrets through their kind messages and prayers. They are immensely grateful.
