It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend and former colleague Neil Waterson. Neil joined the STL team right at the very start and played a huge role in developing the company from humble beginnings in the North West.
Neil was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia eight years ago. Initially only given three months to live, Neil battled through bone marrow and stem cell transplants. Bouncing back from numerous set backs along the way.
Neil’s wishes were to not have a funeral, therefore we are asking for donations in lieu of flowers and a funeral. The money raised will go to the Sheffield Royal Hallamshire Hospital Stem Cell fund to aid Professor Sharrack and Professor Snowden in their pioneering work on MS research. A link to the just page can be found below.
STL’s Chairman Bob Dickens remembers his friend and colleague:
“I first met Neil more than 20 years ago when he came to try and sell Sarah and me specialist footwear. He was working for Bata and we were in our new office in Culcheth near Warrington. Next time he came for an interview as we were looking for a salesman. Our abiding memory was blue suit and military style polished black shoes.
If you would like to make a donation please follow the link below to Just Giving.
