A Bath pub has paid trib­ute to an “ex­tra­or­di­nary” col­league who died af­ter a long bat­tle with can­cer.

The Boater, in Ar­gyle Street in Bath, shared a mov­ing trib­ute to Amy Buller, who worked at the pub for six years.

It an­nounced Ms Buller had died over the week­end of Septem­ber 19-20 and said what an “in­deli­ble point of light” she was in an of­ten gloomy world.

The trib­ute read: “It is with a great deal of sad­ness that we share the news that one of our col­leagues, Amy Buller, passed away over the week­end fol­low­ing a long bat­tle with can­cer.

“Amy was our long­est-stand­ing team mem­ber and to say that she was an ex­tra­or­di­nary team­mate, men­tor and friend to all the staff that have been a part of the Boater crew over the past six years would be to dra­mat­i­cally un­der­state just how amaz­ing and im­por­tant she re­ally was.

“To those that knew her she was an in­deli­ble point of light in an all too of­ten gloomy world, and her kind­ness and pos­i­tiv­ity were con­ta­gious. She will be pro­foundly missed.

“Amy would have cel­e­brated her 40th birth­day on Wed­nes­day. In the days be­fore she passed she asked that to mark this spe­cial oc­ca­sion if peo­ple would do­nate to Dorothy House, and set up the fundraiser.

“We can think of no bet­ter way to cel­e­brate her life than by sup­port­ing this won­der­ful or­gan­i­sa­tion that did much to help Amy dur­ing her treat­ment, and to many, many others whose care is still on­go­ing.”

On the fundrais­ing page peo­ple have left trib­utes to Ms Buller.

One com­ment reads: “Amy, we will never for­get you and your gen­eros­ity is help­ing so many others.”

So far the fundraiser has raised more than £3,400 for the hospice near Bath.
