Michael Sobell Hospice Charity (MSHC) are proud to announce that Northwood born accountant, Michael Breen is the new deputy chairman.
Michael was elected by a unanimous vote of the board of trustees, which he joined in November 2018.
He became a fully involved member of the board of trustees and as a past volunteer understands and respects the importance of supporters and staff.
Commenting on the appointment, Rosalind Williams, chair of trustees, said: “I’m delighted to be working with Michael, who brings a new set of skills and expertise to MSHC.”
Terry Dean, who has played a massive role in campaigning for the hospice to be reopened is confident that Michael is the right man for the job.
He said: “Michael is the right man for the job. We have been working together for the past nine months of so and I am more than confident that he will do a great job.”
Terry was also delighted that the hospice was going to be “business as usual” once essential refurbishment is completed.
He said: “It is extremely important. I am delighted. There is no hospice that offers the acute care like medical expertise for patients.”
The reopening will once again provide an essential service for locals who wish their end of life care to be in a hospice environment.
To fund the necessary work to enable the impatient unit to reopen, the charity will need additional financial support which they hope supporters will get behind.
