George Stevenson – an acknowledgement

Central to the construction of the UCAN centre was former board member and local businessman George Stevenson, who had previously made a full recovery from urological cancer.

Being heavily involved in the building trade George persuaded many of his industry colleagues to donate both labour and materials to minimise the cost of the initial conversion of Ward 44 and the result was as far removed from the ambience of the rest of ARI as you could possibly imagine.

George has been instrumental to the success of UCAN from day one through to the present, and while he is now no longer on the board, he continues to assist the charity in a variety of ways, something that everyone involved with UCAN is extremely appreciative of and grateful for.
