In Loving Memory of Craig Oram

We would like to say an enormous thank you to everyone that has donated to HIPS in loving memory of Craig Oram. 

Craig was a happy, generous, friendly, loyal person who was loved and respected by everyone who knew him. His passing has caused great sadness. Craig was a long standing supporter of HIPS and was a very generous donor. His family very kindly decided to raise money for HIPS in his memory. To date the total raised by all those who knew and loved Craig is a huge £2700 and we are extremely grateful to all of you.
