Church service to remember 12 year old Jack Hollis

Sunday 3 December at 6pm

There will be a service Christ Church, Turnham Green, at which people will be given space to share their grief for Jack Hollis, at 6pm on Sunday 3 December.

Jack, who was 12 years old, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday 29 November. He had cancer, which the family only discovered in July.

Christ Church says ‘there will be space in this service for all ages to express sadness and to remember Jack and the whole family at this time.’

The Hollis family are well known in Chiswick because of the tragedy they suffered in February 2010 when baby Tommy Hollis was killed by a falling lamppost. He was being pushed in his buggy by his nanny when the lamppost outside Chiswick Town Hall toppled over and baby Tommy suffered devastating head injuries.

The foundations of the lamppost had been inadvertently severed when the road was being widened. An inquest jury decided two years later that it had been an accident.

The Tommy Hollis Charitable Fund was set up by his parents Chris and Kate, to help underprivileged, sick and orphaned children and parents who have lost a child.
