Thank you to all those who have given in memory. Please remember the passion and commitment of Sue, Andrew and William as well as the many others who have been committed to our peacebuilding work.
Sue Unsworth, 1948-2016
“During a long career at DfID, Sue Unsworth brought clarity and rigour to the field. She was a great advocate of Peace Direct’s Local First campaign and a warm and loving friend with whom I exchanged many reading recommendations. She met the prospect of death with incredible courage and no hint of bitterness. I shall miss her very much.” – Carolyn Hayman
Irene Glaister, 1922 – 2013
Irene, a Quaker and member of the Burford Meeting, was a great supporter and friend of Peace Direct. She had a long and full life complete with many interests. These included education, dance, music, art and horticulture – especially the growing of alpines. Irene will be greatly missed by her loving family and friends.
Andrew Soares 1980 – 2011
Andrew didn’t like seeing anyone in distress or being treated unjustly, and believed passionately in the work being done by Peace Direct.
William Barnes, 1919 – 2011
Willian was a lifelong pacifist and in later life became a Quaker dedicated to non-violence. The work of Peace Direct moved him greatly.
Leaving a gift in your will
Leaving a gift to Peace Direct simply involves adding a short clause to your will.
Giving a gift in your will can make a vital difference to someone in one of the world’s poorest, conflict-affected countries. Whether that’s giving a teenager in Sri Lanka the ability to learn a language and communicate with people of different ethnicities, or rescuing a child from the militia in DR Congo – you can give people the chance to create their own better, brighter future.
You do not have to be wealthy to leave a legacy – and Peace Direct understands that you will want to make provision for your friends and family first. But please know that a gift of any size will be appreciated and will make a difference to many people around the world.Download more information
