We’re raising funds for a much-loved friend and colleague.

We were all extremely saddened to hear the news that our good friend Carl was recently diagnosed with Metastatic Bowel Cancer in February of this year. Our hearts go out to him, a true gentleman, as well as to his wife and three beautiful young daughters.

Determined to do whatever we can to help Carl and his family through these difficult times as he receives palliative chemotherapy, we will be donating all our profits on orders placed on the 15th of April and up until 12pm on 16th April to Carl, who has opted to split the proceeds with Macmillan Cancer Support.

A member of the Dibor family for many years, Carl’s roots with our company began back in 2006. Our Director, Poonam, was handing out flyers at Huddersfield University in search of a graphic designer to join the company, and was fortunate that Carl responded to the call. Speaking about Carl in a recent address to colleagues, Poonam said: “Carl was a joy to work with from day one of his work experience, and the most respectful, flexible and creative designer, who arrived each morning with a smile. Carl’s career roots have started from Dibor, and I feel we should support the best we can at a time when he needs us most.’

Carl was a valued colleague here at Dibor until 2010, when he moved to our sister company of Pet Brands. Still committed and dedicated to our brand, Carl has remained with the company to this day, working his way up to the position of Creative Director.

We will also be showing our solidarity on Saturday 17th April when Carl’s team at Pet Brands have organised a half-marathon to raise funds for Carl’s cause. With friends from both companies and their families being there to do what they can, we at Dibor hope that we will do Carl proud and show him how much he means to us.
