One of our facilitators, Andy, passed away after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
A member of GMG since 2012, Andy C or by his own words Handy Andy, with his no-nonsense and plain talking style, quickly established himself as a valuable member of the group, joining the facilitation team from April 2013.
Always welcoming new members into the group, with humour and hugs. A cheeky chappy if ever there was one.
He had been a very loyal and essential member, through generosity of heart and contribution in every way, even when his own health has been up and down. The last few months in particular, but he has always been there for other people not only during the group time but from friendships forged thereon.
In typical bravura Andy has come in to facilitate the group, even when has not felt at his best, he valued what the group was able to do for others and also the social aspect.
We will miss him dearly.
