IHC has lost a friend

November 30, 2020

People with intellectual disabilities have lost a strong advocate and a true friend with the death of Charlie Waigth in Auckland.

Charlie died on 9 November 2020 at the age of 96 after working for 50 years with IHC to make lives better for disabled people.

Charlie wasn’t a person to sit back and wait for other people to help. He was one of a breed of do-it-yourselfers in IHC who built our services from the ground up.
