January has not been a good month for OFs as we are sad to announce the death of Commander Peter Lloyd-Bostock (R28-31) on 31 January 2013 at the magnificent age of 98. It is highly likely that Peter was our oldest OF at the time of his death. He was the brother of the late James Lloyd-Bostock (R30-35) who died in August 2003.

The funeral took place on Friday 15 February, at 11.30am, at St Peter’s Church, Henfield, West Sussex.

Fiona Birch climbing high for Africa

Fiona Birch and a group of university friends are raising funds for an African charity by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro this September. She writes:

I left the College last June, after fourteen years at Brandeston and Framlingham, and I’m now studying Biological Sciences at the University of Exeter.

I love travel and adventure, largely fuelled by the completion of my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award, and a school expedition to the rainforests of Borneo in 2011.  However, I also care hugely about the disparity that exists throughout our World.  So when I was presented with the opportunity to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, and combine this with raising money to help improve the lives of East African communities, I didn’t give it a second thought.

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is a huge challenge, demanding both physical stamina and mental endurance.  At sunrise on 3rd September 2013, I and ten colleagues from the University of Exeter hope to reach the summit, and simultaneously raise funds for the charity ‘Dig Deep’.
