Alison Williams’ Funeral
A message from Ben and Sam Williams with details of their mother, Alison’s, funeral.
Funeral details for Mum
Once again, we must beat the sad drum of time and let you know that after one hell of a fight it is finally time to say goodbye to a mother, friend, colleague, and incredible lady that was Alison Williams.
Her funeral will be held on Friday 28th January 2022, at 2.40pm at
Canterbury Road (A260)
Kent CT4 6QU
There is a celebration of her life afterward at Canterbury Rugby Club Merton Lane North, Canterbury CT4 7DZ
All are welcome, though if you are attending both the funeral and the celebration, we would ask that you please contact Kirsty Walder on email@example.com and confirm, to assist us with the catering. We can’t wait to share a beer and a story and let’s see her off in the style that she deserves.
She did however have some requests:
For years Mum told us that she didn’t want anyone to wear black to her funeral and in her notes we can tell you she really meant it! She would like everyone to turn up in as colourful clothing as they feel comfortable and has threatened to come and haunt anyone who turns up in black – so probably best not!
She also only wanted family flowers and Alison has requested that instead of flowers donations to ’The Alison Williams Foundation’ a Charitable Foundation created through Canterbury Rugby Club to establish an Academy for boys, girls, underprivileged and disabled to further their attainment in rugby.
As you might expect from Alison there will be buckets on each door at Barham on the day to raise money.
