Mr Malcolm Struel

Mr Malcolm Struel – Chairman of the Tŷ Olwen Trust 1986 – 2009

It was with great sadness that we heard of the death of Mr. Malcolm Struel on September 18th 2012.

In 1981 Malcolm was persuaded by his friend Mr. Terry Francis to join the Tŷ Olwen Appeal Committee for a year to advise and oversee the setting up of the formal charitable trust.  At the end of that year our then Chairman, Mrs. J. T. Morgan, approached Malcolm to become a Trustee, a role he was more than happy to fill.  Five years later, when Mrs. Morgan died, Malcolm took over the Chairmanship of the Tŷ Olwen Trust, a position he held until 2009.

Malcolm took up the reigns of office and worked tirelessly for the Tŷ Olwen cause, steering the Trust through some stormy waters, but never losing sight of why we are here – the Patients and their Families.  Malcolm was immensely proud of Tŷ Olwen and all that it stands for.

It is thanks to Malcolm’s wisdom, passion, skill, vision, enthusiasm and unstinting care that the Tŷ Olwen Trust is here today continuing to support the service and its team.

Malcolm will be sadly missed by the Tŷ Olwen Trust and the wider Tŷ Olwen family and we send our love and sympathy to his family.

It has been my personal pleasure and privilege to have worked with Malcolm for Tŷ Olwen for over 30 years.

Helen Murray – Chairman Tŷ Olwen Trust
