Story

Everyone was left devastated by the death of Billy Graham and his wife Lisa who were victims of the 2015 terrorist atrocity in Tunisia. Billy was an integral part of the Tynetec sales team, much loved and respected by everyone that knew him. What happened was hard to contemplate and impossible to understand, he is sadly missed by us all and remembered as a man of integrity, wit and charm.

Once the shock had subsided, we set out to achieve something positive in his memory. Billy was keen to get involved with an Alzheimer’s Scotland initiative that paired specially trained dogs with dementia sufferers so the decision was taken to raise the £15K required to fully sponsor a dog in his memory.

Many colleagues (past and present), customers, friends and industry professionals participated in events - marathons were run, expeditions were cycled, raffles were held, quizzes were.....quizzed! and many more simply dug deep and donated towards a fitting legacy for Billy. A special thanks goes to Legrand, who generously matched any & all donations made by its employee’s Worldwide.

We have reached our initial goal of £15K, which will pay for a dog to be trained to specially support people living with dementia. We look forward to following his training progress during 2017 at www.independentforlonger.com <http://www.independentforlonger.com(simply click on the kennel for updates). 

Huge congratulations to everyone involved and sincere thanks to everyone that donated to a great cause in memory of a good man.
