Remembering Mr Andrew Sprowson
The very sad news of Andrew’s accident will leave a hole in BORS, which will be impossible to fill. He was a Fellow on the second round of the BORS Travelling Fellowship scheme visiting the US, Australia, Hong Kong and China. I know that during this time he formed strong bonds with his other Travelling Fellows. Andrew was a strong supporter of BORS and played an active part in the BORS executive setting up the last Travelling Fellowship in 2014. He will be sadly missed within BORS and our thoughts go out to his family.

"In 2012 we had the pleasure to meet Andy and share the most unforgettable trip of our lives. He was the most fun and kind individual we had met and he instantly captured our hearts. We all admired his spirit and passion for life and science. In 2015 we received the sad news of his passing. We are deeply shocked and saddened by the passing of our friend Andy. Our hearts and minds go out to his family. Rest in peace our friend."
