We are deeply saddened to report the death of our founding trustee and Alex’s father, Richard Roberts-Miller.  He was undoubtedly the driving force behind the charity and it brought him so much joy.  He was truly grateful to all of our supporters for their generosity and kindness; moreover, he found the incredible work of the charities we help ‘absolutely mind blowing’, as he so often said.

His was a sudden and devastating loss but we will honour both him and Alex by continuing to commit ourselves to fundraising and finding excellent causes to support.

Thinking of the future, we are hoping this year’s OUCH on May 27th will be bigger and better than ever, a wonderful tribute to a wonderful man.  The trustees want a greater social media presence and will be on Twitter and Instagram as well as Facebook soon.  We have also decided to revamp the website, which is currently in development.
