In loving memory

When Duncan Tait sadly lost his brave battle with cancer in March this year, his family made the decision to support two charities that Duncan would have been very proud to support rather than have flowers at his memorial service. They chose the Peace Hospice where Duncan spent his last days, and Teens Unite.

Duncan Tait was 66, a father and a grandfather, and a man who was kind, gentle, warm and welcoming.  In his early life, Duncan’s chosen career was cut short following a serious car accident.  He had to rethink what he wanted to do and chose a different path, much like many of the young people we support.

His funeral was a true celebration of a life well lived and a man well loved. It was full of love and inspiration, and there was not enough room in the chapel for the many, many friends who came to show their love and support for Duncan and his family.

His Granddaughter's, Eva, who is just 11, and Orlaith, just 10 years old,  penned the following, beautiful tributes to the Grandad they clearly adored.

At a time of great sadness for this family, they chose to help others, and through their generosity, raised £390 for Teens Unite. Maria, Duncan’s daughter said that she knew that her Dad would be so proud.

Teens Unite would like to thank Duncan’s family and friends for their generosity at this sad time.  The money that you raised will go a long way in offering support to more of the seven young people aged 13-24 who, every day in the UK, hear the words “you have cancer”.
