Dinner to benefit UWindsor staffer battling cancer

Friends and colleagues of UWindsor custodian Linda Bell are organizing a pasta dinner to help her cope with financial pressures arising from an illness.

Bell, who usually cleans Essex Hall, is on long-term disability while undergoing treatment for cancer, explains co-worker Tom Dean.

“She’s on half-pay now and still has a mortgage and three teenaged boys at home,” Dean says. “Linda is really feeling the pressure and we just want to help her out.”
