56-year-old Phil Jackson from Belper, Derbyshire, has worked for Vaillant for 30 years. In 2017, he was diagnosed with a rare form of Bile duct cancer. On his 16th wedding anniversary, he was given 1-3 years to live, and told the cancer was inoperable. Luckily, he managed to find a surgeon who was willing to operate, and after major surgery and a round of chemotherapy, he was cancer-free and back at work.
Sadly, in 2020, he was told the cancer had returned and the only treatment for his type of cancer is not available on the NHS. It is, however, available privately, but at a cost of £28,000.
Vaillant Group team members are hosting several fund-raising activities to help Phil and his family fund his treatment. The Vaillant team in Ireland – Ray Keen and Jill Jack – are running a raffle to support this great cause. For a minimum ticket price of £10 you could be in with the chance of winning a Vaillant boiler or one of a host of other prizes.
Alternatively, visit the justgiving page and make a donation of £10 per entry to the raffle. Make sure you include your name, company name and this code: [IP&H] and text or email Ray or Jill to let them know you’ve donated and entered the raffle draw. www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/philjacksonsirt
Ray and Jill extend their thanks for your support and generosity.
