Harry Gration MBE
Remembering our much-loved Patron, Harry Gration MBE, who sadly passed away in June 2022. Harry was a fantastic Ambassador for Paces and was much loved across the Yorkshire region and beyond. In his own words, he was ‘thrilled’ to have been asked to join our team, and it was an absolute honour when he accepted.
In 2019, Harry compered our very successful Charity Ball and helped with various fundraising events during his time in the Paces family. We will remember him with fond memories.
Rosemary, who is a past Trustee of the Charity, is a Professor of Acquired Language Disorders in the Department of Language and Communication at UCL.
