FRIENDS, family and former work mates of a Woolston man have helped raise cash to donate a defibrillator to Warrington Collegiate on what would have been Colin Hankin’s 30th birthday.
Since the untimely death of her 18-year-old son in October 2000, mum Angela Morris has been donating cardiac equipment to save lives in his memory.
His former workplace, Claremont Group Interiors, were keen to mark what would have been Colin’s 30th birthday and held a charity evening at the Collegiate for former student Colin’s family, friends and work colleagues.
Angela, who is now north west co-ordinator for sudden cardiac death charity SADS UK said: “It is a very special company that still commemorates a work colleague after all this time.”
Ann Malone, associate director of Claremont Group Interiors added Colin’s death was a shock to everyone.
She added: “Any members of staff who worked with Colin have not forgotten him or the tragic circumstances of his death and we wanted to do anything we could to help keep his memory alive.”
