Date for Niamh’s funeral announced

MOURNERS are asked to wear a splash of pink, purple or blue at the funeral of five-year-old Niamh Curry, which will take place at 1.30pm on Wednesday at Kettering Crematorium.

The brave youngster from Wellingborough died last Sunday after an 18-month battle with cancer.

She inspired many people to hold fundraising events for the charity appeal set up to raise money for her to have treatment in America.

Her family are holding a cremation and life celebration in memory of the youngster at the Albert Munn Chapel.

Mr Curry said: “Because Niamh touched the hearts of so many we have decided on a public service, but because of the limited space in the chapel we request that family and close invited friends only enter the chapel for the service.

“Please respect this on the day if you come along. There is plenty of standing room outside with speakers and screens for everyone else to hear and take part in the service. I am sure the sun will shine for Niamh and we request that everyone wears a splash of pink, purple or blue as they were her favourite colours.

“We would also love to fill the place with lovely colourful flowers for Niamh, so either bring on the day or get delivered to Chambers and Brighty, Chambers and Brighty, 5-9 Buckwell End, Wellingborough, NN8 4LR.”
