Hilary Pilfold

ETO is sad to report that Hilary Pilfold passed away on 2nd August following a long illness. Hilary was born 26th October 1949 in Birmingham and was the younger sister of Clive Gore. Hilary had a long career in our industry working in the accounts department at YAGO Holdings from 1980-1997 before taking a more senior role at Scala UK in 2001. In her later years she was working part-time for GG&G.

Although Hilary kept a low profile and rarely attended any trade events, she was a well-known figure to many as her comprehensive knowledge and strong personal relationships with customers were an asset to all three companies, her insight and organisational skills will be greatly missed by those who worked with her.

In semi-retirement Hilary dedicated her time to her hobbies and interests, as well as supporting a number of charities that were close to her heart. Given the current circumstances the family ask all those who knew her to remember Hilary in their own way. If you wish to make a donation to one of her supported charities they suggest the RSPCA or Cats Protection.

Clive, Matthew and Neil wish to thank all the customers of GG&G who have already extended their condolences.
