The Sandwich Club customers raise hospice funds in aid of Brian


Brian Queen carBack in September, we lost a member of the Pioneer ‘family’. Our Sales Manager, Brian Queen lost his fight with cancer and passed away at Eden Valley Hospice.

Brian was a familiar figure around Carlisle and he proved to be an inspiration and friend to Sean Mullinder, owner of The Sandwich Club at Kingmoor Business Park. Sean was diagnosed with cancer of the tongue and underwent chemotherapy and surgery to fight the disease. He confided in Brian and together they forged a friendship based on shared experiences.

Just recently, Sean wanted to pay his respects to Brian and decided to fundraise for the hospice. All his staff at the sandwich shop brought in a bottle to raffle and kind customers bought tickets raising £77.

Sean’s outcome is a happy one and he has been in remission for a year now. We would like to pass on our thanks to him, his staff and customers for their act of kindness!

We raised a total of £52 and managed to come 321st on the national leaderboard of fundraisers.
