The Trustees and the Charity team are very sad to learn that Trustee and close friend, Professor Tim Evans passed away at the end of last week. 

"From the moment the new Charity was formed, Professor Evans was a valued supporter – always there for advice and he often came to our events, bringing colleagues and his family with him. His leadership was pivotal in the Charity becoming a part of the infrastructure of the Foundation Trust. He became a Trustee in 2016 and his connection with the Charity deepened; we relied upon his counsel and his friendship – which continued, despite his illness right up until very recently.

"We will miss him greatly – we know we are not alone in this, but we also feel we had a very special relationship with Tim and his family.  Our thoughts and sympathy go to Emer and to his children at this very sad time. He really has been taken from us too early," said Charity Chief Executive, Gill Raikes.
