Start Licensing's Ian Downes would like to offer his sincere thanks to all his friends and colleagues in the licensing industry who have shown so much support and friendship to the Downes family in recent times, following the unexpected passing of Ian's son Calum.
Ian said: "As a family we have been touched by the heartfelt messages, practical support and love extended to us at this very sad time by our 'licensing family'.
"Calum was a much loved son and brother - his loss was unexpected but the help of our friends has given us great strength in the most difficult of times. I also appreciate the understanding of our clients at this time as well. Thank you."
Ian and his family are also extremely grateful for the donations made in Calum's memory to the University of Portsmouth Student's Hardship Fund, including a donation from The Light Fund.
