In Memory of Dr Julia McLean Published: 18 Jun 2024

We are deeply saddened to inform our volunteers and supporters of the heart-breaking news that Vine Trust Board member, Dr. Julia McLean, was involved in a fatal accident on the River Spey on Friday 31st May.

Before joining the Vine Trust Board and Medical Committee earlier this year, Julia was already a much-loved, admired, and valued volunteer both in the UK and in Tanzania, participating in several expeditions to support the development of the Jubilee Hope Medical Programme on Lake Victoria. Julia's voluntary work was driven by her Christian faith and a profound appreciation of the dignity and value of others. She demonstrated a real passion for helping those she served.

Julia will be greatly missed by all at Vine Trust who had the privilege of knowing her, and our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this incredibly difficult time.

In memory and thanksgiving for the life of Julia, her family have requested that a fundraising page be set up to support the work of the Jubilee Hope Medical Programme in Tanzania, a project she had supported and visited on many occasions (picture above shows Julia on Jubilee Hope).
