A message from Neil Hanvey’s wife, Andrea.

‘On behalf of all our family we would like to thank everyone who has passed on their condolences following Neil’s death last night.

‘We would also like to thank the tens of thousands of people who supported the #RogueOneWish campaign.

‘All the messages of love during the past week have given us a great deal of comfort during a very difficult time.

‘We would also like to thank everyone at St Michael’s Hospice, especially Amy Duncan, without who #RogueOneWish would not have happened.

‘All donations at Neil’s funeral will go to the Hospice’s Family Support team and will be used to fund work with children and young people.

‘An online donation page will be set-up shortly.’

On Monday night we posted a message on our Facebook page which read: ‘On behalf of Neil Hanvey, his wife Andrea and all his family, we want to thank everyone who supported the ‪#‎RogueOneWish‬ campaign.

‘The director of Rogue One, Gareth Edwards did all he could to make Saturday a very special day for Neil.

‘Neil, his family and everyone at St Michael’s Hospice would like to say thank you to Disney, Lucasfilm and especially Gareth Edwards.’
