Funeral set for ASTRiiD’s founder David Shutts OBE

The funeral of the founder of Recruiter’s Charity of the Year ASTRiiD, David Shutts OBE (pictured right), is due to take place on Friday 29 June.

Recruiter reported on his passing last week at a Nottingham hospital.

Shutts set up ASTRiiD, which helps people with long-term health problems into work, after being diagnosed with kidney cancer just days after his 50th birthday. His cancer later spread to his lungs and brain.

The funeral will take place at South Lincolnshire Crematorium, Gosberton Road, Surfleet, Lincolnshire at 11:30am.

As the service will celebrate Shutts’ life, attendees are asked not to wear mourning colours but rather navy blue or something that reflects his naval service, as he was a commander in the Royal Navy.

A memory book will be available on the day and mourners can donate to Shutts’ charity ASTRiiD using a JustGiving page set up by his brother and ASTRiiD chair Steve Shutts (pictured above left).

Anyone wishing to submit their favourite jpeg photo of David are asked to email Steve Shutts entitling the email DAVID and using three words to describe David.
