    Richard Driscoll RIP

    It was with great sadness we heard that a good friend and colleague, Richard Driscoll, had passed away at the weekend following a cardiac arrest.

    For 20 years, Richard was the Director, then Chief Executive of the National Association for Colitis and Crohn’s disease (now Crohn’s and Colitis UK) and worked closely with CICRA during the development of both charities. Richard was a great friend of CICRA and anyone who knew him or worked with him will know what a caring and compassionate person he was, working tirelessly to help people affected by IBD. Since retiring from Crohn’s and Colitis UK, Richard continued to use his expertise and wide knowledge in furthering the work of all those involved in IBD, as well as finding more time to spend with his lovely family.

    Our thoughts are with his wife Aviva, sons Adam, Sam and Johnny and three grandchildren.
