Industry mourns Ben Allen

Industry mourns Ben Allen: Image 1 Richard Designs and family are extremely sad to announce the passing of their colleague and family member Ben Allen.

Ben joined Richard Designs full-time in 2010 but, as a member of the family, had been attending Harrogate Bridal Shows since 2005. Visiting customers for several years, he was a firm favourite with everyone who met him thanks to his warm and kind personality.

For the last few years Ben had worked in a more office-based role but still relished the opportunity to attend trade shows and meet up with familiar faces in the industry. A hugely popular member of the team, Ben will be sorely missed by us all.

Unfortunately despite a brave fight, Ben was unable to overcome a cancer diagnosis and passed away aged just 41, last Wednesday 26th June. His funeral will be held at Mintlyn Crematorium, King's Lynn on Friday 12th July at 14:30, all are welcome to attend. Please do not send flowers, rather we would invite donations to our chosen Charity of the Year – Bowel Cancer UK. Elaine and the family would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and thoughts at this difficult time.
