A sad farewell to Lawrence Walker

We are deeply saddened by the death of our good friend Lawrence Walker, who we’ve worked alongside for many years. An amazing man and wonderful champion for diversity, who will be very much missed by all. Here is one of our favourite (and most recent) pictures of Lawrence in action, giving a passionate speech at Stand Up For Diversity in November 2022 at the Mercury Theatre in Colchester.
