Anthony Wonnacott, Director General Manager at South West Galvanizers Ltd, is walking 20 miles on 19th June for Byron Buckingham who — after battling cancer, having a lung removed, and suffering a stroke followed by three seizures — lost most of his life savings after the builder he employed went into administration.
Anthony explained: “I’ve been lucky enough to work with Byron for 26 years and I can’t put into words the admiration I have for him and his determination to live life fully. After battling cancer and having a lung removed, he was determined to get back to work, but unfortunately he suffered a stroke and lost the use of his left side.”
To make life a bit easier, Byron employed a local builder to complete some essential work at his home, but before it was complete the builder went into administration, along with £40,000 of Byron’s life savings. The work that was done was condemned by the building inspector and his home is still left in much need of attention.
"On 19th June I’m walking 20 miles to raise money for Byron and his family so that essential works can be re-done on their home. Please consider donating and helping me to support a great employee, colleague, and friend.”
