Our friend and colleague Paul Windle
Mark Robinson, SCAPE chief executive, shares his thoughts about who Paul was, and how he was the true emobidment of SCAPE.
A few weeks ago, Paul, our relationship manager for the East Midlands, was diagnosed with a form of cancer that was deemed inoperable; a diagnosis that was devastating for him, his family and for everyone that cared so deeply for him.
Following this news, Paul spent time with his wife Angela and his sons, his beloved dog Zak, and was supported by his friends and colleagues at SCAPE. Sadly, the progression of the disease was swift, and Paul passed away in his home last week.
For everyone that knew Paul, this truly is extremely sad news to hear.
Paul has been with SCAPE for over a decade and for me, was the very embodiment of who we should all aspire to be.
Paul was kind, gentle, always making time for people and taking the time to say hello. He didn’t just hear what you had to say; he really listened. He was constantly encouraging, supportive and always found a way to lift you up. He exuded a warmth, a generosity of spirit and a genuine interest in the things that his colleagues were working on and the things that mattered to them.
He also loved SCAPE. Who we are, what we stand for and the things we do to make the world a better place.
And he was fantastic at his job. He was relentlessly proactive and enthusiastic in his work, his care for his clients and his efforts to help others. He would dedicate as much time as was needed to help people learn new things, sharing his knowledge and expertise to help others grow. And not once did he lose his appetite to learn something new for himself along the way. His commitment to doing a fantastic job was absolutely unrivalled.
In his memory, we are raising funds for Cancer Research UK, to help them finds ways to diagnose and treat people in the future at an earlier stage, and fund vital work supporting people with cancer and their families.

Last week, we lost a colleague, a friend and a huge part of SCAPE. He will be deeply missed.
Rest In Peace, Paul.
