Many of you will know industry stalwart David Willis, and here at Channel Info we wanted to lend a helping hand for a very worthwhile cause.
David has been in the office products industry for over 50 years and has had a distinguished career. Initially working for a London dealer after completing his National Service, David went on to work for companies that included Durable, Velos-Perforex and HSM. Although ‘retired’ in 2002 he then threw himself into volunteer work as a Non-Executive Director for Abbeyfield Kent Care Homes and Chislehurst and Sidcup Housing Association and a whole variety of other activities. However, the lure of industry proved too strong and he returned as a consultant, working with several leading European brands including CEP, Herma, Pilot Pen and OfficeSnax from the USA, finally officially retiring in 2015.
David’s daughter Victoria is suffering from Cancer and in a fantastic gesture her young daughter and a friend are shaving their heads to ‘show Mum how proud we are of her’. In addition to this the girls and the family have also been raising money through various activities.
David is immensely proud of his daughter, and the amazing effort his granddaughter Ruby and her friend Callie are making. If you too would like to help, please go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ruby-callie
