Huws Gray launches charity partnership with the Sepsis Trust UK
Published: 09 February, 2017
Huws Gray has announced its charity partnership with Sepsis Trust UK for 2017.
The partnership will see the builders’ merchant raise awareness of the serious illness and will fundraise throughout the branch network to help support the charity.
Sepsis is a serious life threatening infection and the Sepsis Trust UK was founded in 2012 to reach out and bring together those who have survived, been bereaved by or encountered sepsis in every imaginable circumstance. They aim to save lives and improve outcomes for survivors of Sepsis by educating healthcare professionals, raising public awareness and providing support for those affected.
Huws Gray has experienced the force of Sepsis first hand after the sudden loss of company director, Elfed Hughes who died last year in May after a short battle against the infection. Mr Hughes was with Huws Gray for 24 years and played a major role in developing and monitoring certain departments, as well as playing a key role in the company’s growth and management.
Terry Owen, managing director, of Huws Gray, said: “Elfed’s contribution over the 24 years he was with us was exceptional. His willingness to take responsibility combined with passion, determination and honesty made him a very special person. He is sorely missed by all of us here at Huws Gray.
“We are delighted that we can partner up with Sepsis Trust UK to help raise awareness of this serious illness and raise essential funds to help the Trust invest in new technology to help fight the condition. As a company it’s fantastic for us to be able to do this in the memory of Elfed and we’ll be pulling together as a company to do what we can.”
