1928 – 2017
Charles Wickham-Jones, who was a founder and passionate supporter of the TWJ Foundation, has died in Oxford at the age of eighty-nine. In 1974, working with Patrick Jobson and David Wright, he helped to launch the Foundation which was established by his aunt Mrs Lilian Higgs in memory of her father Thomas Wickham-Jones, a London wharfinger. For nearly forty years, Charles Wickham-Jones was an active Trustee taking a prominent role in the Foundation’s activities. A strong supporter of the NHS, he greatly enjoyed interviewing candidates for its Fellowships. Even in recent years, when ill health prevented him getting to meetings, he followed the work of the Foundation with considerable and sustained interest.
Bequest from the Jobson Foundation
The Trustees are extremely grateful to the Jobson Foundation for a generous bequest which will enable the TWJ Foundation to significantly expand its activities.
