Lynda Cantor

Meet our Trustee: Lynda Cantor MBE, Hon President

Lynda Cantor was a founder member of the charity in 1975 and one of our original trustees,

She was the driving force behind its development from a small community group to a respected medical research charity, roping in many other key people along the way.

Since the formation of the charity, Lynda has contributed as much unpaid work as anyone, driven by the impact of retinitis pigmentosa on her own life and frustration at the lack of knowledge that existed in the early days.

She was also involved in the formation of Retina International. Lynda was recognised for her work with the award of an MBE in 1994.
