Sad loss of a dear friend to HELP, Benidorm

John Keating

This is to let all HELP members know of the sad passing of John Keating. He has been a HELP member and volunteer for many, many years and always gave so generously of his time to help those less fortunate than himself. He has helped many 'old' people as he called them, most of whom were younger than himself! He had to return to the UK because of his own ill health nearly 2 years ago, and has been with his family during that time. He was a wonderful man with a lovely smile and will be sorely missed.
