On behalf of the Cymru Wales UNISON Black Members Committee and the entire UNISON family, we pay heartfelt tribute collectively to our beloved friend, colleague, and UNISON activist Ms. Donna Campbell.

Donna was a bright light, in the lives of her children, the patients she cared for, the Windrush Generation, and the time Donna devoted to her church, where she was known for every Christian value, Faith, Hope and Charitable.

Donna believed in fairness and equality for everyone, with love, care and compassion.

Donna’s warm fun musical personality, sense of humour and her laughter, shall remain with us all, as a loving memory.

Donna was taken too soon. But we must remember it’s not the quantity, but the quality of her life is what she gave and what mattered to her.

Donna’s Light may have gone out but it’s the SPIRIT of DONNA that we will Always Remember.

Darron Dupre, regional organiser for UNISON at Velindre University NHS Trust said, ‘Donna has been remembered by family, friends, colleagues and trade union representatives as the light which lit up every room. Her laughter could be heard in the corridors of Velindre Cancer Centre (VCC) well before you could see her, and her smile and human kindness penetrated every dark corner. Donna spoke up for her UNISON colleagues at VCC for many years. This news has left her UNISON branch, the wider union and her colleagues devastated’.
