Apology for our Reece story errors
Following our report last week on the death of Reece Murrell, who lost his battle with cancer, we wish to correct and clarify a number of points.
Reece was aged 21 and not 22, as we stated in our story.
He also died on Sunday, January 19, and not on the Saturday night, as our report claimed.
Reece’s mother, Amanda Murrell, and stepfather, Rob Sims, wish to make it clear that funds raised through a football tournament in Reece’s memory will not be going towards funeral costs, as these will be met by the couple themselves. Instead they wish any money raised to be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton, where Reece was cared for.
The family say Reece had achieved a number of the things on his bucket list but that this was nowhere near being completed, with many that he was unable to do.
We apologise to Reece’s family for the errors in our report and any distress this has caused.
