Tributes/Speeches: Celebration of the Life and Work of Dr Gordon Skinner
There were well over 150 people who attended the celebration of ‘The Life and Work of Dr Gordon Skinner’ on Saturday 3rd May at the Novotel, Birmingham. It was a really wonderful day. All the speeches/tributes were recorded.
Afshan would like to thank everyone who attended the Celebration of the Life and Work of Dr Gordon Robert Bruce Skinner on 3rd May 2014 in Birmingham.
For those of you who were unable to attend this wonderful celebration, below are links to the speeches and tributes that were given throughout that day.
Afshan writes It was a truly memorable occasion where we heard about Gordon the family man from his children Fiona and David and about his work from clinical and research colleagues. Sheila Turner, Chair of TPA and Dr Barry Peatfield gave moving tributes to Gordon and his thyroid work. Fiona his daughter and now Chair of the Vaccine Research Trust informed us of the drive to raise funds to continue Gordons research into thyroid disease and vaccines.
There were friends, colleagues, patients, his Golfing group and French class and everyone had the opportunity to exchange stories about the Great Man.
Many of you kindly gave donations to the Vaccine Research Trust and I would like to thank everyone for their immense generosity.
Thank you again for attending and for your support; it is much appreciated.
