Sad news reached us here at VB this morning, when we heard of the death of Patrick Rolfe.
Anyone involved in the Vestas protest will remember 24 year old Patrick, who came down to the Island to show support and solidarity for the 500 workers about to lose their jobs back in July 2009.
Patrick, originally from London, but more recently studying in Leeds, has been fighting a rare stomach cancer for the last few months and was finally defeated by the disease on Friday.

His family and friends are keen to hear good memories from anyone who met Patrick during his time on the Island.
