Over the last couple of weeks we have suffered two tremendous losses to the #Shawston family.

Tony who worked in the wood shop and Russ who was a key member of our warehouse team, both at our High Wycombe branch. Two men who were highly respected and much loved colleagues have been taken from us far too soon by cancer.

As it’s World Mental Health Day today, we wanted to share the image below of the High Wycombe branch holding a 2 minute silence in honour of these two great men.

The comfort offered to our colleagues before their passing and to their families, friends and colleagues since has been simply mind blowing. A true testament to the ethos that runs through the very core of our business, our people are our strength.

Talk, listen, comfort, support. #worldmentalhealthday

To Tony and Russ, may you rest easy in grace and love.

Sweet treats for a great cause.

At #Shawston Hyde today there is a cake sale to support #CancerResearch in aid of our dear colleagues Anthony and Russ who passed away recently.
Alarmingly 1 in 2 people will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime.

Both Nichola and Ellie have taken the time to bake some delicious treats in memory of their valued colleagues, so if you’re in the Hyde area today please pop in and buy a cake.

If you’re not in the area then please consider donating through the Just Giving link below, so that more research can be funded into tackling this devastating disease.
