It is with great shock and immense sadness that we announce the sudden death of Phil Copsey, Trustee of Puzzle Centre on Saturday 24th March 2018.
Phil Copsey’s youngest daughter attended Puzzle. Phil was a planning consultant at a leading independent town planning and urban design company promoting high profile development proposals through the town planning process. At Puzzle Phil worked tirelessly in his role of Trustee which he had held for 10years. Phil dealt with many charity related issues especially in the management of our premises. His compassion for our cause and ability to pragmatically deal with situations meant he was a well regarded and much respected member of our Trustee Board.
Many lives were touched by his kindness, humour, generosity, intelligence and all round zest for life. We will all miss him dearly.
