    • Ali-Watkins6

      Born in Hereford, Ali attended Kingstone High School, Hereford Sixth Form College and graduated from The University of Oxford (St Catherine’s College) in 1994. After a career in International Sales & Marketing, based in Kent, she returned to Hereford in 2002 becoming Managing Director of the family business, RSS Hereford. She met Dave the same year and they were married in St Lucia in 2003, Rory was born in 2005 and Erin in 2007.


      Diagnosed in 2010 with breast cancer, she underwent two operations and treatment which included six courses of chemotherapy and 15 doses of radio therapy. She fought the disease with a positive outlook and “never give up” attitude. In 2015, Ali was diagnosed with bone cancer and underwent further treatment but within a couple of years the disease had spread to her liver. After various treatments we all remained hopeful that the disease could somehow be controlled but, in early 2020, scans showed that the latest drugs were unable to stop the growth of the tumours. The last resort was to try IV Chemotherapy with the first treatment at home on the 29/5/20. Sadly, although she tried so hard, her body was unable to fight any more. Ali passed away peacefully at St Michaels Hospice, Bartestree, Hereford on the 12th June 2020 with Dave by her side.


      During her life Ali made many friends around the country and the world through work, University, college and the children’s school. Ali was passionate about fundraising, always doing all she could to help others. Over the years Ali was proud to raise thousands of pounds for local charities such as the Red Cross, Macmillan, The Haven, St Michaels Hospice and the school PTFA where she was chairperson for two years.


      The family would like to express their thanks to Dr Goodyer of Cantilupe Surgery, Dr Elyan of Cheltenham Hospital, The Renton Unit (Hereford), The Haven (Hereford), St Michaels Hospice (Hereford), The District Nurses, The Palliative Care Team, Healthcare at Home and to many friends who have supported her through her courageous battle with cancer. 


      We are eternally grateful.


      In honour of Ali, and everything she brought to this world, donations can be made in accordance with her wishes which will benefit The Haven (Hereford), St Michaels Hospice (Hereford), and Breast Cancer Now. There will be three separate fundraising pages for each of the charities and we’d like to keep the donations as equal as possible.


      Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe and you will never be sold to a third party or be sent unwanted emails. Once you donate, the money goes direct to the charity.
      Thank you
      Dave, Rory & Erin Watkins
