Dr W L Champion

Dr Champion provided Maldon Hospital’s medical care and served as the town’s General Practitioner from 1950 to 1991. He is a much remembered and respected figure in Maldon and the Board’s re-naming of the scholarship in his honour was at the behest of the local community and with the consent of Dr Champion’s family.
