David John Fisher

It is with immense sadness that we announce the death of David Fisher, co-founder and co-owner of Sunbird (sister company to WINGS). David had been battling against a form of lung cancer for over a year which ultimately did not respond to treatment. He died peacefully in his sleep on 22nd May. A full appreciation of David's life will appear on our website soon. See here for a note from Steve Rooke.
