Memorial Service for Robert Gregory


We are sad to announce that Robert Gregory, co-founder of the AKU Society, passed away in October. As many of you know, Bob was the co-founder of the AKU Society along with Prof Ranganath.  When Robert realised that little was being done for AKU patients, he decided to set up the AKU society as the world’s first charity exclusively dedicated to the disease.  The National AKU Centre was named after Robert in recognition of his key role in driving forward the AKU movement.

There will be a memorial service held at All Saints Church, Speke, Liverpool (just on the left of the last bend before the new airport) on Monday 24th November at 2pm. This will be followed by a reception at the Crowne Plaza, Old airport terminal building.
We are all very grateful to Bob for the amazing work he has done supporting AKU patients, and we will continue this work in his memory. We know many of you will want to come and pay your respects at this event. If you wish to attend the service please contact Sorsha so we can inform the family of the numbers for catering. You can email [email protected] or call the office on 01223 322897.

If you cannot attend, you can go to Robert's memorial website, and request to light a candle online in his memory, or leave a tribute message.
