The family request a traditional dress code, although if you would like to wear any tie or scarf which associates you to Paul through sport, work or any other connection, that would be most welcome. Any general coloured ties /scarfs are also fine, including traditional black if preferred.

Everyone is welcome to attend any, or all of the three events and venues.

The family respectfully request donations to Paul’s dementia Just Giving site instead of flowers:
