Robin Viner's funeral will be held at 2.00 p.m. on Monday 25th March 2019 at St. Peter's Church, Pedmore Lane, Pedmore, Stourbridge DY9 0SW followed by a cremation for family members only. The wake will be held at Stourbridge Golf Club, Worcester Road, Stourbridge DY8 2RB from 3.15 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.

Pedmore Church has very little parking space and therefore it can be difficult to park nearby. Pedmore Cricket Club have kindly offered their Car Park for those attending the service. The entrance to the cricket club is along Pedmore Hall Lane (DY9 0SR). The church is adjacent to the cricket ground and there is a gate in the corner of the ground – 100 yards around the boundary if its not too wet. It is about 250 yards along the road to the front entrance to the Church which is on Pedmore Lane. Motorists are advised that parking at the adjacent Foley Arms is controlled by cameras and charges apply. 

Donations will be accepted on the day of the funeral at the church on behalf of Russell's Hall Hospital (RHH) or, alternatively, to Dr. Douglas' team who looked after Robin and treated him for scleroderma. Donations in the days following the funeral may be sent to the "Rheumatology Clinical Fund Reference 0443" which will ensure that it goes towards the patients' interests at RHH or for a renal donation "Renal Unit Endowment Fund" which is the hospital's charity fund for the Renal Unit and the Renal Ward C1 where Robin stayed during his time in hospital.
