Sharon was moved to get a tattoo after her uncle and aunt died within two months of each other at the end of 2012 and start of 2013 and her friend Vicki in 2017, at Warwick Myton Hospice.
Sharon worked at Sainsbury’s on Dunchurch Road in Rugby for 12 years and it was here that she met Vicki. She explains:
Vicki worked at Sainsbury’s as a Team Leader until she became too poorly. We became good friends and she encouraged me to become a Team Leader too. We had some great times and she was loved by all those who worked with her. Last year Myton was the store’s Charity of the Year. The money raised – which was around £10,000 – was donated in memory of her.
My tattoo means so much to me, as did Vicki, my aunt and my uncle. People always comment on my tattoo and I tell them my story of why I chose the butterfly. Every single person at Myton whether they’re staff or a volunteer shows the utmost respect, compassion, care and support to not only the patients but also to their friends and family during the most difficult times.
We want to say a massive thank you to...
Not only Sharon but to the staff and customers at Sainsbury’s on Dunchurch Road for your incredible support.
