Founding Chair person (2014-2018)
Sadly, on the 25th September 2018, we lost our Chairman Nigel Rigg after a long battle against cancer.
Nigel was so much more than our Chair – he was our beloved friend, tireless champion and humble benefactor. We are deeply honoured that Nigel was such a big part of this project, very hands on, giving so much of his time in helping vulnerable young people to turn their life around.
He was a man of substance and his tremendous courage to face any challenge made him a formidable presence, which will be sorely missed. He lived and breathed his passions, and we at Youth in Transition feel very privileged to have been one of them.
Our young people drew great strength from Nigel; here was a man fighting for his life whilst they wanted to give up theirs. It is through his dedication and commitment, that we have been able to help hundreds of local youth find a way back to a life worth living.
Nigel leaves an amazing legacy, we remember him with immense gratitude and are determined the incredible work he has started will live on.
