David Benson 1983-2021 RIP

Dave Benson, our stalwart treasurer for the past 4 years, has died unexpectedly at home. It is a tragic loss for his family, girlfriend, friends, colleagues and for the Friends of Ruskin Park. He was a kind, generous and able man, always willing to help others charitably alongside his busy and promising career as an audit director with KPMG. He was a key FoRP trustee. As well as the vital work of steering our finances and governance with the Charity Commission, he ran the bench donation scheme, he helped at bandstand concerts and events, supported sports in the park and many other activities. He lived locally for the past 9 years, though originally came from near Bristol. He was a great friend, such a loss and will be sadly missed by us all.
