UCanDoIT Founder Bids the Charity Goodbye

UCanDoIT founder Anthony Wigram gave up the Chair three years ago although he remained on the board and has now taken the decision that the time has come to resign as a trustee. He remains committed to the ongoing work of the charity and will continue to offer support.

He said “I want to thank sincerely all tutors for the magnificent work they have done over the last 16 years. I am of course delighted to have left the charity in such good hands. We all know how passionate and committed Mary Payne (CEO) is and how much she gives to our work. We are also extremely lucky to have Dr Michael Taylor as Chair who is equally passionate and committed and brings a great breadth of knowledge to every aspect of our campaign to bring a new life to the thousands of disabled people who can benefit so much from our help”.

 

 

As the Chair of UCanDoIT Dr Taylor stated “It was the vision of Anthony Wigram to improve the quality of life for disabled people through their safe use of the Internet. He dramatically achieved this goal by founding the charity UCanDoIT. We now want to build on his success by ensuring UCanDoIT continues to expand through active collaboration with other charities and social enterprises.”

Mary Payne CEO of the charity, herself a former learner and tutor, said “We all owe a debt of gratitude to Anthony Wigram for his conviction that people with disabilities would benefit from one-to-one computer and internet tuition and his determination to make this happen. We look forward to carrying his mission forward.”
