Vikki Orvice fundraising dinner
A gift to you from our birthday girl.
The FWA’s first female vice-chair, Vikki Orvice, should have celebrated her 57th birthday on Friday.
Sadly we can’t mark the occasion with Vikki this year as she passed away in February. Instead we will celebrate her life with a fundraising dinner on Wednesday (13th) for the The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
