It is with sadness that we inform you that Michael Woolley, our colleague, friend and honorary chairperson passed away, at home on Sunday 3rd October at 6pm.
Coleen writes: "Michael was a champion of our clients, volunteers and supporters. His passion and desire to improve the lives of clients never wavered and my life, and those of many, is richer for having known you. Never to be forgotten."
For those of you who knew Michael, thank you for all the love and support you have extended to him and to Friends Without Borders over the years. We will mark his passing at the Drop In on Thursday with a few moments of silence (all are welcome to join us) and once we have the opportunity to discuss between ourselves and with Michael's family, we would like to find a more permanent way to remember him.
For those of you who have not met Michael, or for those who wish to feel close to him at this time, you can read a tribute to him by Coleen in our most recent Annual Report here.
With all our love,
Bryony, Veronica and Coleen, on behalf of the Trustees
Friends Without Borders
