About us News Tributes paid on the death of Vision Aid Overseas’ Past Trustee, Mr Brian Mitchell. Vision Aid Overseas would like to pass on our deepest heartfelt condolences to all family and friends regarding the death of Brian Mitchell FCA, FRSA and his wife Audrey. Brian was extremely active in the work of Vision Aid Overseas for many years, as a committed treasurer from 1996 to 2007 which was greatly appreciated and then he continued as an active supporter. He was made an Honorary Life Member of Vision Aid Overseas (VAO) in 2008. He is remembered very fondly by some of our volunteers who are still very active in VAO. One said, This is very sad news. I can vividly remember Brian at some of my early AGMs. He was a great character and very passionate about keeping VAO buoyant. Another added, Oh this is so sad. Yes Brian was treasurer during my early days with VAO. I remember him as being very dedicated to the work of VAO and worked hard for the Charity’s benefit.
