Dear Ossie,
Congratulations on achieving a Longstanding Volunteer Award.
 
This Award is in recognition of your unwavering dedication, passion and commitment to improving Stroke Rehabilitation Research here at our University and demonstrates our appreciation of your efforts to support and encourage Professor Marion Walker's Team. Your sustained Commitment and enthusiasm for our University, and the community in which it is embedded, is exceptional. I know you have been working hard to set up the Ossie Newell Foundation to support PhD studentships in this field, and I wish you every success in this endeavour. 
 
Your work has raised the profile and broadened our knowledge and understanding of stroke rehabilitation, informing new interventions to benefit future stroke survivors. The impact of your contribution is outstanding. We are extremely fortunate to have your sustained input and dedication.
 
Congratulations again on this very well deserved achievement.
Yours sincerely,
