The Linsey Dagger Appeal

Tyson Mordue sent this message around the BCA user group on 29th April:

Members will recall that in 2008 I played the Linsey Dagger Challenge to help the family of a work colleague who had been diagnosed with cancer. With your help I raised over £1,000 but this was only a fraction of the cash raised by many, many other activities.

Originally Linsey's prognosis only gave her up to late 2008, but she battled hard with an incredibly positive outlook that truly inspired me and other colleagues. Only now has the illness finally caught up with Linsey and she died in Bristol Royal Infirmary last night with her husband Paul by her side. We received this message from Paul this morning. "I would personally like to thank all the staff that have supported our family over the last 22 months; please pass my thanks to everyone.”

In turn I would like to thank those members of the BCA who supported me during the 2008 Challenge and who have continued to enquire after Linsey ever since.
