Another Tribute To James Partridge

September 22, 2020

Those of you who knew James Partridge, the disability campaigner for people with facial disfigurements, may be interested in this letter from his friend John Morrison, which was sent to the Guardian in tribute to him.

On setting up the London-based charity Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI), which supports organisations in countries where there are acid attacks, I turned to James Partridge for advice. I needed guidance with developing support systems for women and children who had been attacked with acid, and so had severe facial injuries.

James gave generously of his time on the kind of help they needed, and subsequently became our treasurer. There are hundreds of women and children around the world who now lead improved lives thanks to his work.
