With its head office and state-of-the-art showroom based at Vale Park, Evesham, Karndean pledged its support to CLIC Sargent after learning of the tremendous support given to Mason, the son of one of its sales managers, Ian Gibbs.
Ian said: “In April 2015, Mason was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin T-Cell lymphoma; we can’t thank CLIC Sargent enough for the care and support they provided our family, especially with Mason being diagnosed at such an early age, just before his third birthday.
“Although Mason became really poorly as a result of the chemotherapy itself, he still managed to keep smiling and entertain our family with his cheeky nature, and it’s thanks to charities like CLIC Sargent who help make the difference.”
Paul Barratt, managing director of Karndean, said: “Understanding the support Mason, Ian and his family have received from CLIC Sargent, our charity golf day was the perfect opportunity for us to say thank you and recognise its fantastic work.
“Our annual event continues to grow, and it’s thanks to all our staff, customers and suppliers for supporting our golf day and helping us raise even more funds for good causes.”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Lydia Buckmaster said: “Last year CLIC Sargent supported 47 families in Worcestershire and I'm absolutely thrilled that Karndean has made this wonderful contribution in support of their colleague Ian and his son, Mason.
“We really appreciate the hard work and generosity that has gone in to its Charity Golf Day – every penny raised will help provide vital support for children and young people with cancer, and their families.”
