It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Richard Bailey.
Richard died last night. Richard was for many years the JMB’s Resident Support Officer, providing support to our most vulnerable residents. Richard’s commitment to helping people was incredible. After he retired, some ten years ago, he continued to do a voluntary surgery on the Lawson Estate. In recent years he was very ill, but still struggled to JMB events. Richard received a Southwark Civic Award for his commitment to JMB residents.
The news is very raw today, but the JMB intends to plan a proper tribute for Richard who I am sure will be warmly remembered by both colleagues and residents.
