Many of you may by now be aware that Niall Mackay, the Managing Director of Gerson Relocation, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer towards the end of July. Since then he had been at home awaiting the start of chemotherapy. On Wednesday of this week, his colleagues received a call from Jenny, Niall’s wife, to say that his condition had very quickly worsened and with great sadness advised that Niall, a friend and colleague to many of us within the BAR, passed away on Tuesday morning (22nd Aug). This will be a great shock to all of you, as it has been to his colleagues, and of course all our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during the weeks and months ahead. With regards to the funeral arrangements, we are able to advise that the service will be held on Weds 30th Aug at 4.00pm at St Nicholas Church in Cublington, (opposite the Unicorn where attendees will be invited to go after the service), postcode LU7 0LQ. For those planning to attend, please could you advise Chris Mackley ( Instead of flowers, the family have asked for donations to be made to a pancreatic cancer charity and we will provide details of this as soon as is possible.
