Our year 2020 passing brian gardner picture

It is with sadness that Thrombosis UK share the news of Mr Brian Gardner’s death.

Brian died peacefully on 22rd February. He was a founding trustee for Thrombosis UK, or Life Blood as the charity was then called. Accepting the post of Treasurer, he was extremely able, ensured that Thrombosis UK got off on a sound financial footing and for many years was a key person in making a massive difference to the establishing, growth and sustainability of Thrombosis UK.

As an individual, Brian was a very lovely man, highly honourable and trustworthy he always had a spring in his step and a positive ‘can-do’ approach.

Brian will be much missed and everyone at Thrombosis UK send sincere condolences to his wife Pam, family and friends.
