• It is with deepest sadness and regret that we report the passing of Nigel Brown OBE, peacefully in his sleep last night after a short illness.


    In the short time that he has not been at the helm of the Trust we have been told so many times of the importance of his work. He will be missed by many.

    The Trust will continue as his lasting legacy.
