A SERVICE for BOBBY BETTS has been arranged by his family on Friday, July 31, followed by a wake.
Due to current restrictions, attendance has to be limited and, unfortunately, an open invitation is not possible. However, we are posting these details so that friends and colleagues who can’t attend can have their own thoughts for Bobby and raise a glass on the day. The service is at 4pm; the wake at 6pm.
For the past few years Bobby had been volunteering at the Resolve Night Shelter in Hatfield – and has been nominated by them for a posthumous Hero of Hertfordshire award. If you would like to offer any level of donation or a final parting gift for Bobby, the family ask that you donate directly to the Hatfield shelter in tribute to his memory, via this link: https://localgiving.org/fundraising/BobBetts/
If you are unable to attend the wake but would like to receive a memorial booklet, or you would like to contact Bobby’s family, please use the Contact Us Form from the drop-down menu, and we will ensure your message is passed on to them.
