Now that a few weeks have passed since our President and former captain Phil Bennett sadly passed away, the family have asked us to release the following statement.
“The last few months have been an extremely difficult and sad time for us as a family. Philip leaves behind a void in our lives that will never be filled and we will miss him deeply every day. We have however, taken comfort in the incredible kindness that has been shown to us, which has been truly overwhelming.
“There have been so many thoughtful and caring gestures that it is impossible to thank everyone individually. But please be assured that every act of kindness has meant a great deal to us as a family and will never be forgotten.
“With heartfelt thanks, Pat and family.”
