We recently visited Alan Barkiss and his children, George and Pippa. Sadly, last month Alan's partner and mother to his children, Michelle Barkiss, passed away after catching COVID-19. We were contacted by various individuals asking if we could help in any way after the difficult circumstances they have been put through. Of course we didn't give it a second thought and contacted the family right away asking how we could help. Alan said it was their goal to take their children away on a family holiday together, and we have made that possible. We have gifted the family a voucher for a Centre Parcs holiday, for whenever they are ready, to spend some quality time together and reminisce on their happy memories of their mam. One of Michelle's colleagues said "Michelle was a fantastic nurse and is going to be a huge miss at Deerbolt, she worked throughout the pandemic since the early days putting other people before herself!". Our thoughts are with the Barkiss family.
