Farewell to Alastair Hanton OBE – one of SE24’s founding investors

Alastair Hanton was a visionary and principled man who made the world a better place. Read his obituary from the Guardian here. He was an inspiration to all who knew him.

He was also influential in getting SE24 started. He was the key link in the chain that allowed us to undertake our very first installations at Herne Hill United Church (where he was a member) and Herne Hill Methodist Church Hall.

As SE24 was born out of our community cycling group, Whoosh, we are also proud of Alastair’s consistent campaigning for green transport.
