The Coffin Club - Dennis Beach

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:09 pm on 2 May 2014

Death, like taxes, is inevitable - or so the saying goes - but when it comes suddenly and out of the blue those left behind can be left in the dark about what to do. Preparation for the inevitable has become popular, with clubs being set up where people can organise their own funerals and even make their own coffin, often personalising them with patterns or symbols. Dennis Beach has already made his through the Tauranga Coffin Club, and was so inspired by the process, he's now looking to set up a new club where he lives in Katikati.
