Colleagues and family fulfil last wishes of much-loved co-worker with £3,000 donation
We have raised more than £3,000 to help fulfil one of the final wishes of a much-loved colleague who passed away in September.
Employees have collected cash, held raffles, mufti days and bake days, with one even running the
Beachy Head marathon in memory of Caroline Woodhams, a valued member of the firm’s marketing team. The fund was further boosted by a donation from Caroline’s husband Terry. The money raised by the employees was also then generously matched by the company.
It was while Caroline was being treated for pancreatic cancer at the
Hospital that she spoke about fundraising to buy more portable syringe drivers for use by patients. These pieces of equipment allow medicines to be administered continuously but are small enough to fit into a pocket or bag, allowing patients to remain mobile and use them at home if required. Caroline found them a lifeline during her treatment but was aware that not enough were available for all patients to make use of.
Caroline lost her fight for life before embarking upon her fundraising project – and that’s where we stepped in and managed to raise the £3000 total over a three month period to fulfil her wish.
The money is being split between St Michael’s Hospice and the McCartney unit at
Hastings for the purchase of three portable syringe drivers.
We would like to thank our many suppliers who kindly donated raffle prizes for this very worthy cause.
