New Chairman for Burrswood 

Due to ill health Canon Tony Smith has had to stand down as Chairman of Trustees at Burrswood; he will, none the less, continue on the Trustee Board.

Mr Richard Diggory, who has been a Trustee since 2007, has been unanimously elected Chairman of the Trust to serve for a minimum of two years in that capacity.  He will stand down as Chairman of the Finance Committee.

Richard retired in 2007 from a 37 year career in the financial services sector, the majority of it at The Bank of England.  He has known Burrswood for 25 years and has always been impressed by the combination of medical skills and spiritual gifts that come together in Burrswood’s ministry.  In 2007 he and his family experienced that ministry at first hand during his sister’s final illness.  

Richard and his family have lived in Kent since 1975.  Richard’s wife Sue is currently Curate of St Mark’s Church in Tunbridge Wells, and in accepting this appointment as Chairman of Trustees he has made it clear that his first priority is to support her in that ministry.

As the work of Burrswood goes forward in this challenging financial environment, Richard says that he looks forward to preserving and extending Burrswood’s reputation for amazing quality care for the whole person and ensuring that the love of Christ is kept at the heart of that care.
