Gwen Trundle has worked with the JWH Group for over ten years and recalls a time when family values were displayed within the group.
Approximately four years ago one of the valued co-workers, wonderful draftee and even better person received some terrible news when his little 2-year-old daughter was struck down with a rare form of leukemia.
With many specialist appointments, hospital admissions and challenging treatments facing the little girl (including a bone marrow transplant) and her family her dad quickly used all of his company sick leave to be with her. Not only did the WA Country Builders Busselton office and the whole JWH Group continue to emotionally offer support during this most difficult of times but they assisted the family financially once the sick leave entitlement had all gone, to enable the father – who was the sole family income earner – to spend special time with his daughter and family.
The story has a sad ending in that the beautiful little girl lost her battle but the family quickly acknowledged and very much appreciated the support the group provided.
It was also very special, as a long time company employee, to see the family first values be shown in such genuine, giving and wonderful way.
