The new fund will benefit two national cancer charities, Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as the local charities that Utopia supports throughout the year.
Introducing the fund, Ian Hall, joint MD and also Liz’s brother, said: “We will never forget Liz, either personally or professionally. Liz made such a tremendous impact on the Utopia business we see this as a positive way for us to honour her memory and help those charities dear to her. Sadly, Liz suffered from cancer so we are particularly keen to help fund the fight against it. We always hold a variety of fund-raising events throughout each year and it makes sense to bring them together under one banner.”
So far, the business and staff have together donated £1,450 which has been split between the two charities.
