Last September we heard with great sadness that our Rector, Canon Timothy Wimbush, had died after a long battle with cancer. He had come to us in 1976 and was approaching retirement when he became ill; had he lived, there would have been a presentation made to him to mark his 35 years of selfless service to our community. Throughout that time and especially during his last illness, Timothy had the devoted support of his wife Erica, who must now leave Sibford Rectory to make way for the new incumbent. I am delighted to tell you that this appeal is being made in Timothy’s memory to help Erica.
After his ministry and his music, Timothy’s passion was for cricket. All at his funeral in St. Mary’s in Banbury will remember the theme tune of Test Match Special playing as his coffin was carried out of the church. So it seems right to continue that theme by calling the appeal “Timothy’s Testimonial” and I hope that you will give it your generous support. Details of how to make your donation are below and your gift will be most gratefully received.
