Last week we heard of the death of Mike Lewington, one of our trustees.
It’s taken a while to let this news sink in and what this means to us, his family and the community.
Mike was not just a trustee, he was a friend, a role model, a mentor, a gentle, kind and wise man. He was someone who had a lifetime of experience and used it for the greater good of the community.
He gave so much of his time to the people of Redditch and expected nothing in return. He always had time for people, even when his schedule was full and he always greeted people with a sunny smile.
His death is a huge loss to us all and we at the Old Needle Works Foundation would like to celebrate his life and we will be grateful that we were fortunate enough to have our lives touched by Mike.
Our thoughts are with his family.
