A Personal Fundraising Message from Roger Crowther

It’s been a tough couple of years for me launching The PI Desk without Diane, my wife of over 40 years but I am very grateful for the support of my wonderful family, friends and industry colleagues who have helped me through the difficult last few months.

Diane was diagnosed with cancer at the end of 2011 and after initially defeating her bowel cancer subsequently passed away in January 2013 as a result of undetected ovarian cancer.

For those that knew Diane all would agree she was the ultimate hard working professional and helped people in many ways be it family, friends through their own personal problems and industry colleagues through their business related claims/issues.

In the last few years we have donated over £5,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support and will continue with financial support raising money the best ways we can as Macmillan provide special help and care for those suffering with this most dreadful of diseases.  They do need as much funding as possible to help find a cure and support people through their most difficult times.

As Macmillan are 98% funded by public donations we hope to raise more money from family, friends, business colleagues and clients for nationwide projects and will match any small personal donations that are passed through The PI Desk.

Debra’s Half Marathon Just Giving Page

To help support Macmillan our Accountant Debra ran the Sheffield Half Marathon in memory of Diane and she created a Macmillan Cancer Support Just Giving page set up for the event and if you would like to continue to help raise money for this great cause, please visit the page to make a donation.

Finally if you would like to discuss how to or would like to send us a personal donation for matching please contact me.  Please make any cheques payable to Macmillan Cancer Support and don’t forget to attach a gift aid form where appropriate.

Thank you in advance for any fundraising support.
