The Milton Keynes Rose Trust are saddened by the passing of Valerie Williamson BEM. Val was a great supporter of the Milton Keynes Rose and founding member of Milton Keynes Disability Awareness Day (MKDAD) celebrated annually on July 14th at the Rose.

Val was an exceptional, treasured and determined person in so many ways. We send our heartfelt condolences to Val’s family, friends, colleagues and all who are sad at this time.

You can see Val telling the story of her life in the Living Archive’s film “No Such Word As Can’t”.
