‘My mother-in-law Jan was really well looked after by all the staff there and so were the family. This inspired myself and the team at Don-Bur to give something back. During this difficult time my friends at Don-Bur really supported myself and my family and we felt that this would be great to be involved in especially as Jan’s loss was so recent.’
