It is with great sadness that the Bass Coast Community Foundation farewells our Founder, Dr Peter Brooks, who recently passed away unexpectedly. Peter had an extraordinary and enduring commitment to the Foundation, attending his final Board meeting on 20 March 2017, only a few days before he died.
As a loved, respected and trusted member of the Bass Coast Region, Peter's selection as our Founder was universally embraced. The Foundation will forever be grateful for his contribution and presence, and the credibility he brought to the establishment of a charity that has gone on to give so much to so many across the Bass Coast Shire.
The instalment of a Founder is part of the legal process required to establish organisations such as ours, but in taking on the role Peter was steadfast in his dedication to working to improve the opportunities of people in the community he loved. He maintained this even when his health was deteriorating.
I would like to join with all supporters of the Bass Coast Community Foundation in sincerely thanking Peter and his wife Alison for the wonderful support, leadership and counsel that was always gratefully accepted. On behalf of the Board we wish Alison, Stephen and Mark and family every condolence on Peter's passing.
