The chair of the Victoria Hospital Comforts Fund has done excellent work – and is now retiring, as reported by the Herald:
Leading figure in Sidmouth hospital transformation steps down after 30 years
Graham Vincent will continue as a trustee of the comfort fund after holding the role of chairman since 1989.
Mr Vincent, who was born in Sidmouth Hospital, was invited to become a trustee in 1987, becoming chairman two years later. He gave his farewell speech at the fund’s annual general meeting last Thursday (April 11).
Mr Vincent led vital upgrading work of the Victorian building which was completed in five phases over the course of 24 years, costing the fund £5million.
