The Keith Coombs Trust
The Keith Coombs Trust is proud to be sponsoring the Pay for a Day scheme at the Marie Curie Hospice, West Midlands for the 10th January 2016. Keith's son, Anthony Coombs explains why the Trust has chosen to support Marie Curie in this way.
"The 10th January was our father Keith's birthday and it was in his memory that my brother Graham and I set up the trust following his death in 2010.
"Although not a cancer sufferer nor directly connected with Marie Curie, Keith Coombs' roots and life were in the West Midlands. His business S&U PLC, an important contributor to the KC Trust, was based in Birmingham for over 50 years before moving to Solihull; he was also Chairman of Birmingham City for a decade and lived in Knowle for over thirty years.
"I know that Celia, our mother, would be proud of the small way in which the Trust is supporting such a vibrant and inspirational institution; a place incidentally where Keith Coombs' loyal secretary spent her final days."
