Every year Don Whitley Scientific chooses a local charity to support, and in 2018 we put our efforts to raising money for The Yorkshire Air Ambulance. With the help of a variety of raffles and bake sales held throughout the year, we are delighted to announce that we have raised £1,200 for this wonderful organisation and a cheque is now on its way.
For 2019, we have decided to support the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Charitable Foundation, in memory of our friend and colleague, Steve Whitley, who tragically and very unexpectedly passed away at the end of 2018 whilst being treated at Leeds General Infirmary.
The son of our chairman, Don Whitley, Steve was the mastermind behind the renovation of our new facility in Bingley, and his efforts over the past few years to create a truly state-of-the-art facility for us leaves behind a legacy which will benefit the company for many, many years to come. We miss him greatly, and hope that the money we raise in his name this coming year will assist The Leeds Teaching Hospitals in continuing to provide high quality patient care, and research in all fields of medicine.
