It is with great sadness that we announce the recent death of Laurie Smith.
Laurie was integral to the Carpenters Fellowship, having designed our magazine for many years.
He was also a valuable instructor in our training programmes and above all, a great friend to many members.
At the request of his wife, Hilary and son, Rynd, we have established The Laurie Smith Memorial Fund, to enable his legacy to further the work of the Fellowship, to which Laurie has already contributed so much.
If you would like to contribute to the fund in Laurie's memory, please email me.
