Cassie Hayes #agentsunited
Everyone who works in travel has been deeply upset about what has happened to a fellow travel colleague, Cassie Hayes, in Southport on Saturday 13th January.
Cassie was the assistant manager at the TUI store and was well-known to many in travel.
Many of us never met Cassie but we *know* that if we did, we would have thought she was great. We know, because we are travel.
We understand that Cassie had a daughter and so on behalf of everyone in travel I would like to propose that we come together and contribute to fund to help Cassie's family.
Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by this terrible incident, including all the TUI staff.

Travel Gossip a Facebook Group consisiting of over 13,000 British travel professionals. I am the Admin of the Group and I set up the fund on behalf of our Group members and the travel industry at large. I did not know Cassie personally but many in the travel industry did. Thank you, Bruce.
I wanted to let you know that the family of Cassie has now received the funds which we raised on their behalf.
Thank you again for all your kind contributions. I know that Cassie's family is very grateful.
Thank you so much for contributing the fund for Cassie Hayes. The response has been overwhelming and humbling. Thanks also to the many media outlets that have helped spread the word. We now have raised over £6,000. Incredible.
People are so kind; from people who knew Cassie; people within the travel industry family through to people with no connection. Everyone has felt compelled to do something, to make a positive difference. Thank you.
The fund remains open. There are no firm plans regarding the distribution of funds as yet. Please be assured that all care will be taken make sure the fund is used appropriately, at the right time.
