Claire Smith, community fundraiser for the York Teaching Hospital Charity, said Mr Pipe worked for Portakabin for 25 years and died from cancer in August last year. Recently a golf day was organised in his memory to raise much needed funds to support the centre.
She said: "As well as the golf day, Portakabin Group ran a safety competition throughout the year. When various departments met their targets, the company paid an award of £20 per employee and now a lot of them have given money to the charity. Because of their generosity, they were able to donate £640 to the Cancer Care Centre."
