Picture in former chief’s memory

A landscape of Wensleydale was presented to the Trust in memory of former Chief Executive, Nigel Clifton OBE, on the anniversary of his death , 8 August 2010, by his wife, Elizabeth Clifton.

The picture will hang in the main foyer at DRI, the hospital that was Nigel’s base since taking up the post as Chief Executive in 1997.

Presenting the picture, by Yorkshire artist Piers Browne, Mrs Clifton remarked that her late husband had two great loves: work and Wensleydale – but he never went to the latter without his briefcase full of the former! She thanked staff for their support for Nigel during his illness – and for her and the family after his death.
