Founder member of Stretton Climate Care Geoff Hamby died on Friday 9th January 2009. He was 59.
As our first vice-chairman, Geoff was inspirational in shaping a brand new charity and giving it focus and direction. He brought his considerable skills as an economic analyst and social researcher to the tasks involved in creating Stretton Climate Care, providing robust and comprehensive background information that helped us decide priorities and obtain grant aid for our work. Despite the progression of his illness he carried on giving us help, advice and assistance right up to the end.
Geoff leaves behind his beloved wife Mary, his children Tom and Beth, a grandson Wilf and hundreds of friends whose life he enriched. The world is poorer for his passing.
