Whilst many of you will have been enjoying a leisurely breakfast or reading the paper on Sunday morning representatives from management, sales, accounts and marketing met at the ARAG office. Sunday, 11 May, was race day in memory of Barry. Despite the slightly bleak weather, spirits were high, as we discussed our individual aspirations, shared thoughts about Barry and switched our focus to the 10k course.
Tony, Paul, George and Chris all finished within seconds of each other in the 52 minute zone. The ladies were delighted with a personal best at sub-60. We were supportive of each other and above all had fun.
The total raised stands at £1,285 and the good news is there is still time to donate. Please visit our 'Just giving' page www.justgiving.co.uk/ARAG ARAG will match every penny donated. Any contribution, even a few pounds, is gratefully received.
Examples of how your money can help
• £55 could give support to one patient, family member or carer who has been affected by pancreatic cancer through our information and support services
• £100 could pay for a day’s worth of research into new treatments, better ways of giving existing treatment or controlling treatment side effects
In fond memory of Barry here are a few donation messages from people who had the fortune of working with him:
“Barry will never be forgotten by anyone who met him. He was a true gentleman”
“A very worthy cause in memory of a lovely man”
“Barry was a true friend, a person of integrity, a warm sensitive human being, and a credit to his profession”
