Bathroom manufacturer Utopia has set up the Liz Green Charity Fund to honour the memory one of of its founders, Liz Green, who died in September 2022.
The new fund will benefit two national cancer charities, Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as the local charities that Utopia supports throughout the year.
Already the business and staff have together donated £1,450.
Ian Hall, joint MD and also Liz’s brother, said: “We will never forget Liz, either personally or professionally. Liz made such a tremendous impact on the Utopia business we see this as a positive way for us to honour her memory and help those charities dear to her.
“Sadly, Liz suffered from cancer so we are particularly keen to help fund the fight against it. We always hold a variety of fund-raising events throughout each year and it makes sense to bring them together under one banner.”
Green, who died on September 2, was diagnosed with cancer in late 2021. She was said to have ‘tremendous energy and infectious sense of humour’ and was well liked throughout the whole KBB industry.
