Marie Curie Hospice, Hampstead
If you were thinking of sending flowers, we would prefer instead that you consider making a donation to the Marie Curie Hospice, Hampstead, where Gary spent some time. There will be an opportunity to donate to Marie Curie Hospice both at the service and the Wrap party.
As Gary was a firm opponent of formality, there is no dress code.
In that same spirit, we would ask that you please don’t wear a tie.

Coolhurst Tennis & Squash Club, Courtside, Coolhurst Road, London N8 8EY
