Oliver Owen Pittock
***UPDATE*** Oli was loved by many people, but we have sadly had to limit numbers to the memorial (please see below the list of confirmed attendees.) Dorset Cruises (https://dorsetcruises.co.uk/) have very kindly said that anyone else that would like to raise a glass to celebrate Oli's life are welcome on The Dorset Queen on Poole Quay at 4:30pm. We will also be saying a few words and scattering a small amount of his ashes in the sea at this time.
Adam Shutler, Ali Oliver, Becca Franklin, Ben Arlow, Colin Palmer, Dan Hardy, Dan Wastall, Den Shutler, Helen Wesley, Howard Bowles, Jo Maddox, John Kennedy, Jon Morgan, Katie Travers, Kerry Goodall, Kevin Walters, Liz Lockton, Marilyn & Jim, Mark Nutland, Max Perry, Max Shutler, Neil Green, Olli Goodall, Paul Matson, Phil Pickering, Philippa Tarry, Rhea Menon, Rob Franklin, Rob Gray, Robbie & Marica Pilkington, Scott Elford, Sniffler, Steve Jones, Stuart Rawlinson, Sue & Pat Maguire, Tim Tyrell
When Oli/Ollie/Olly was told he was terminally ill, he told Charlie and Amy that he didn't want a big fuss or funeral service with his coffin there. To adhere to his wishes the immediate family will be interring his ashes on 7th October, after this time you are welcome to visit him (and his mum who he will be buried alongside) at Poole & Wimborne Woodland Burial Ground in Colehill.
We will however commemorate his life at a memorial service on 13th October, starting at 12pm, in the Harbour View Suite at the RNLI college in Poole. This will be followed by a buffet and an opportunity to raise a glass and swap stories ;-). Please note that space is limited so anyone who isn't on the attendance list cannot be accommodated. We also ask if anyone attending would kindly do a lateral flow test beforehand. There isn't any parking at the RNLI so please park in one of the multi-story car parks nearby.
Oli was great at giving flowers to Charlie and his mum, but wasn't a massive fan of them himself, so we ask for donations to be given to The Forest Holme Hospice Charity who were just wonderful in their care for Oli (and his mum previously,) please see link below. We understand that some may like to give flowers at the memorial service, if so these should be sent to: 55 Grove Road, Wimborne BH21 1BN.
Donations will be gifted to the following charities:
- Forest Holme Hospice Charity
