THE founders of a new charity launched in memory of a St Helens dad who died of a heart attack this summer have presented last-wish charity the HoneyRose Foundation with a generous donation.
David and Theresa Shaw, who helped to launch the Andy Shaw Foundation in honour of their son, presented HoneyRose chief executive Lynn Duffy with a cheque for £2,500 last week.
The cash injection will help the HoneyRose Foundation to organise more special days out for adults with terminal or life-limiting illnesses.
Despite being fit and healthy, dad-of-three Andy Shaw was struck down with a fatal aortic aneurysm on Father’s Day, aged just 44.
But, since the tragedy, his parents, wife, Rachel, and sister, Lisa, have set up the Andy Shaw Foundation in his honour - to raise vital funds for charitable causes that were important to him.
As well as the HoneyRose Foundation, they are also supporting The Christie cancer hospital in Manchester.
A tribute penned by the Saints fan’s wife, parents and sister read: “Andy was a totally dedicated, generous, caring and loving family man who provided a secure and happy home for his family.
“He was a real people person, always making sure he did his utmost to help others develop and achieve their potential. Andy pushed himself daily, he took great pride in his work and his family and settled for nothing but the best.”
