After the devastating loss of a colleague William (Bill) Turner to cancer in October, B2 Business Systems, St Asaph has decided to support St David’s Hospice, where Bill spent his last few weeks.
Recently B2 employees, Neil Roberts and Kelly Livesey met with St David’s Hospice team recently to find out more about the care is provided and how the fundraising efforts will help. They were impressed by the choice St David’s provides of how people wish to be cared for, and grateful for the team of experts who were on hand for Bill’s illnesses and end of life care.
B2 have a team of employees, the ‘Think Tank’, who meet once a month to discuss and plan fundraising activities and have already chosen to take part in the Dragon Boat Race on Llyn Padarn in September. They also have plans to lace up their walking boots for a Slate Trail team relay, particularly given Bill’s own love of walking the North Wales countryside.
Kelly Livesey, Bill’s friend and former manager at B2, said:
“This charity is very close to our hearts and is special to all of us at B2. St David’s Hospice gave Bill and his family support and helped him live his final days in a comfortable happy surrounding, giving him the care he needed. We hope to raise money for this charity, so they continue to provide help and support to families in the same sad circumstances.”
Neil Roberts, B2 Helpdesk team and close friend of Bill’s, said:
“When our great friend and colleague Bill was diagnosed with cancer, they took such good care of him and I know they made his final days as comfortable and peaceful as possible. Bill wasn’t just a patient to them, he also became a good friend. St David’s Hospice also continue to offer support and guidance to Bill’s family throughout this very difficult time. The work they do is so valuable to so many families at their time of need and we are all looking forward to helping them as much as we can.”
