It is with sadness that York RA announce the death of one of our long-serving members, Eddie Benson, MBE (services to the Community in Haxby & Wigginton).
Eddie had previously served as our Training Officer and started the Youth Section some 20 years ago.
Eddie’s funeral is at St Mary’s Church, Haxby on 1 Sept at 12 noon.
The Press published an article about Eddie which can be found at: http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/15486350.Champion_of_young_people_dies__aged_82/
On the York RA website Eddie is remembered as the first recipient of the Chairman’s Award in 1990-91
Our thoughts are with Eddie’s friends and family at this sad time.
