I was married to Dick for over 30 years. During that time his generosity and enthusiasm meant I could share in his passions for wildlife, livestock and his job. He loved all aspects of his work and was keen to support young people in their development, so they too could find fulfilment.

It has been lovely to meet applicants, find out more about their studies, and to watch their progress. I regret that I can no longer be an active Trustee, but was honoured when I was asked to be a Patron
