Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

A CHE­SHAM-based char­ity is mourn­ing the death of its gen­eral man­ager.

John Fox died on Oc­to­ber 10 after a coura­geous bat­tle with can­cer. His fu­neral was held on Tues­day at the Church of the Im­mac­u­late Heart of Mary in Great Missenden.

Mr Fox be­came a vol­un­teer with WORKAID – a char­ity that pro­vides tools and equip­ment to dis­ad­van­taged peo­ple around the world – in 2010 and be­came Gen­eral Man­ager in 2013.

WORKAID chair­man Rob Lev- ine de­scribed John as one of life’s truly good peo­ple who had made a tremen­dous con­tri­bu­tion to the work of the char­ity.

He said he would be greatly missed by all who knew him.

A state­ment on the WORKAID web­site said: “John Fox was in many ways the glue that has bound us to­gether.

“Un­der his lead­er­ship WORKAID has gone from strength to strength. “We will miss him hugely.” Mr Fox leaves four sons and a sis­ter.
