Suzy and Steve, Mill Road Winter Fair 2008
The Suzy Oakes Trust was set up with typical generosity and imagination by Suzy Oakes, the well-loved Community Champion of Mill Road just before her premature death from cancer in July 2011 to help fund projects which would help promote the rich diversity and lively community of Mill Road which she loved so much. She is remembered as a tireless supporter of the independent shops and one of the driving forces behind the Mill Road Winter Fair whose committee she chaired for many years.
The Trust is chaired by her husband Professor Sir Steve O’Rahilly, with Anne Prince, Andrew Phillips (Treasurer) and Caro Wilson (Secretary) serving as Trustees. Julian Price is co-opted as a non voting advisor.
