Thank you Mr Coombs
Valli Rally participant Robert Coombs stunned our team in Honley on Friday morning when he came into the store with a cheque for £450 worth of sponsorship.
Each year staff and clients from our Huddersfield branches take part in a 10-mile charity walk, usually for the Forget Me Not Children’s hospice. This year however Valli Opticians hosted the fund raising event on 19th September in memory of Kamal who was just 32 years old when he died of acute myeloid leukaemia, only two months after diagnosis.
A dedicated charity worker Kamal set about raising thousands of pounds during his treatment. He was determined to raise as much money as possible from his hospital bed, pledging to raise £50,000 for Bloodwise,
Mr Coombs was a long term client of Kamal’s and he was one of the first people to sign up to do the walk. Many thanks go to Mr Coombs for a grand job in supporting the Valli Rally and raising the funds.
