Celebration of the life of George McRobie

On 4th November Practical Action held a celebration of the life and work of one of our founders George McRobie, a close associate of EF Schumacher and chairman from 1977 to 1983.

Family and friends gathered at St Andrew, Holborn along with many former Practical Action colleagues, to remember a man who was crucial to the development of our organisation over many decades.
