Colleagues of a much loved supermarket worker have paid tribute to him.

Lesley Jackson, Community champion at Morrisons, Workington, said how well liked and popular Glynn Scurr was with both customers and staff.

Glynn died in December, aged 54, after an illness.

A collection held in his memory raised £731.01 for the North Cumbria Kidney patients association at West Cumberland Hospital.

The cheque was given to staff and will go towards looking after the patients on dialysis, for items such as special chairs.

Glynn had been attending for kidney dialysis treatment three times a week there.

Lesley said: “Glynn was much liked on the ward.”

Customers showed how much Glynn was liked at the Morrison’s store by donating to a charity bucket on one of the tills, £300 was collected in the first couple of days.

Lesley said: “It just shows how well liked Glynn was by customers and staff, he was always making cakes and scones for charity events, and he would joke and get away with things on the tannoy - because it was Glynn.”

She added: “People were putting money in no end, as they knew it was in Glynn’s memory.”

Glynn died peacefully at home on December 29 2020. He left mother Brenda, sister Mandy, brother-in-law Michael, niece Chloe and nephew Kieran.

Employees and friends at Morrisons have also raised more than £1,300 for Clic Sargent, after walking more than half a million steps.

Lesley said: “We are absolutely astounded by how much was raised. Staff were really good at taking part and were averaging 16,000 a day. Taking part in the step challenge got people out for walks. It was good crack and a nice challenge, we are keen to do similar challenges in the future. Staff are really looking forward to the next challenge.”
