We regret to inform that our dear friend and Director, Lewis Allen passed away due to cancer complications on the morning of January 7 2015.

Lewis was one of our founding friends, supporters and Board Members in the USA.  He supported our early lecture tours and mounted a wonderful and impressive occasion in Boston for Lee Prosser in April 2013.  He was generous with his time and his ideas and took considerable efforts to support the team in many ways. His warmth, his intelligence and his encouragement were a privilege to be a party to.
