Tribute to My Dear Friend and Colleague Roger Clifton

I first met Roger Clifton when I was volunteering at Beyond Barriers Vision Impaired Group in Tower Hamlets, and the first impression I got was he’s a great guy.

Later I was lucky enough to be asked by Roger to attend an interview at East London Vision (ELVis). And as luck would have it, I was offered a job at East London Vision working with Roger Clifton who was the CEO at the time.

I worked with Roger for over two years. He was so encouraging, had great enthusiasm and was so passionate. It was a joy and a privilege to work with him. I remember him being a very positive person, and all the service users were fond of him. He was a very charismatic man.

Roger was not only my work colleague but he was a great friend. What a sad day when he was took away from us. Roger will be missed but he will be forever in our hearts.
