A Big thank you and farewell to Richard, our Chair of Trustees

It is with both gratitude and a touch of sadness that we announce the departure of Richard Byard, our Chair of Trustees, from Green Health Thames Valley (GHTV) this month. Richard has been an unwavering force of support for over a decade, dedicating himself to our mission of promoting mental well-being through horticultural therapy. His six years as Chair of Trustees have been instrumental in steering our charity towards continued success.

A Decade of Dedication

Richard’s journey with Green Health Thames Valley began more than a decade ago when he joined us as a trustee, at time when the charity’s future looked uncertain. Over the years, he became an instrumental supporter in our mission to bring garden-based mental health and wellbeing therapy to those in need.

His contribution extends far beyond board meetings and governance. He has spent hundreds of hours meticulously crafting grant proposals and bids to secure the necessary funding for our charity. His dedication to securing resources has been vital in enabling us to provide essential services to those in need.

A Heartfelt Thank You

Richard’s passion for our cause and his commitment have always been clear to all who have met him and we’d like to extend our sincere thanks for everything he has done for GHTV over the many years he has been involved.
