We hereby wish to announce that one of PSFA’s founding members Ian Dichmont, sadly passed away on the 12th of January 2018, at the age of 97. Ian was a lawyer who served voluntarily on our general committee for many years and continued as a life member until his passing.
PSFA was a cause very close to Ian’s heart. He encouraged his daughters, Ann and Penny when they were at primary school to hold a concert to raise funds for PSFA. Ann recalls how Joan, Ian’s wife, took them to the PSFA office, to hand over the tin containing the money raised. Penny remembers how proud she was of the certificate of appreciation she was given.
Our board member, Brian Benatar, director, Petrina Pakoe and staff members attended his funeral at Rosebank Methodist Church on January 18.
The PSFA general committee, management and staff extend their sincere condolences to Ian Dichmont’s family and friends – you are all in our thoughts and prayers.
Rest in peace Mr. Dichmont.
