Roger Retires

At our Board Meeting this week, Roger Wotton, Chairman of Tackle Prostate Cancer since January 2015, announced his resignation as a trustee with immediate effect. He commented:

"It is with deep regret that I announced my resignation as a trustee of Tackle. This is entirely due to the progressive nature of my advanced prostate cancer. At the moment I have reached the end of the road for any further therapy and it is unfortunate that this has developed over a relatively short period of time. The last 5 years with Tackle have been some of my most enjoyable and I will really miss the challenges, the camaraderie and the work in helping men and their families suffering from this terrible disease.

I believe I am leaving Tackle at a time when we have enhanced our reputation, raised our profile and established a sound financial position for the charity. There is never a good time to say goodbye, but I do feel that I now need to focus on things closer to home, as much as I have enjoyed helping others".

The other trustees thanked Roger for his enormous contribution to the success of the charity and wished him all the best.

The Board announces that Ken Mastris has been appointed Chairman and John Coleman as Secretary and Vice Chairman.
