“Mum contracted cancer 10 years before she died. Her focus and interest was on the disease that she had, and also how others dealt with it. There's no debate in my mind that mum was very much focused on the next generation. It was all about the children and what they need to deal with.” 

Hamish’s mum, Ann, left a gift to Canteen to support future generations.
