Meet the Staff: Alan’s Back from the Edge!January 17, 2017
We have some rather wonderful news from TBS Towcester branch. Alan Jones, stalwart counter salesman of many years, is back at work.
Nothing special in that, is there? Well, yes there is. Half way through last year, Alan was so ill that he had to give up work and was having banks of tests. A potentially terminal diagnosis was given. But to the delight of colleagues and customers, Alan has rallied so well that the diagnosis was changed. This week he returned to the plumbing counter.
It’s not the first time that Alan has made a dramatic comeback – years ago he nearly died of meningitis. But he keeps confounding the predictions! He says he can’t stand being away from his many friends at TBS, and he’s thankful for all the goodwill and support while he was away.
