John Humphrey’s Funeral – Further details



(a) Standard dress for a funeral. However, Brenda wishes people to wear a piece of red for Humpty’s love of a certain football team.

(b) Brenda wishes family flowers ONLY at Humpty’s funeral.

(c) However, any donations can be made to the following charities –
the MSA Trust and/or to Marie Curie (for use at its Solihull Hospice).

(d) There will be collection boxes at the funeral for those charities.

(e) Any donations can also be made direct to those charities, as below:


1. MSA Trust (Multiple System Astrophy)

Copied are details from the MSA Trust website that you can click onto to make it:

If you are a UK tax payer you can increase your donation through Gift Aid. Register now and they can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate at no further cost to you. You can make a one-off or a regular donation Online, by Post to:
MSA Trust, 51 St Olav’s Court, Lower Road, London SE16 2XB

or by Texting MSAT01 to 70070.



There are two options for them –

(a) cheque direct to Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull.
Any cheques sent there should be made payable to ‘Marie Curie’ and they can restrict the donations so they can be spent specifically at the Solihull Hospice.

Their address is:
Marie Curie Hospice West Midlands, Marsh Lane, Solihull, Birmingham, B91 2PQ

Write on the reverse of the cheque ‘for Solihull Hospice only’.

Also indicate that the donation qualifies for Gift Aid, if you are a UK taxpayer and ask for a Gift Aid declaration form to be sent to you.

(b) Online via:
Their national website.

There your donation would also qualify for Gift Aid, again if you are a UK taxpayer BUT it would only go into national funds and not direct nor restricted to the Solihull Hospice that Brenda desires.
