Thank you, Fred.
Our Brighton & District Remap Branch, held a special meeting in July, not only to welcome back everyone to the first group meeting since early 2020 but to also celebrate 45 years of support to the charity by long time servant Fred Maillardet.
Fred’s PhD experience in the analysis and design of artificial limbs was one of the drivers to set up the group in 1976, combined with a desire to help those in need, using the skills and know-how of students at Brighton University, and other volunteers. He carried out many cases himself, and his Remap involvement and influence expanded to the role of Charity Trustee in 2000, Vice Chairman of Trustees in 2010, and Chairman of Trustees 2016-18.
A presentation was made to Fred by panel Chairman Steve Whyley and Fred’s wife, Margaret, for her support to Fred during more than 4 decades of involvement with the charity. He also commended the group for their tremendous support for the charity throughout the pandemic.
The Board of Trustee’s and the Central Staff would also like to give thanks and appreciation to Fred, for what has been a truly fantastic achievement of 45 years of commitment, dedication, and support to the Brighton panel and in more recent times as a Trustee and Chair of the Trustee Board. We hope that Fred’s achievements and dedication will inspire members to continue making anything possible for those who need our help.
