Watford’s Peace Hospice bids fond farewell to Gill

 Published on: 2nd August 2014   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category: Uncategorized

A large celebratory gathering  marked the retirement of Peace Hospice Care Community Fundraising Manager Gill Crowson who has devoted a large part of her life to the Hospice. Glasses were raised as staff, trustees, community members, fundraisers, colleagues past and present, the Mayor of Watford  and the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire, congratulated Gill on her longstanding commitment to the development and progression of Peace Hospice Care. Gill has been involved with the Hospice since the early days, working as a volunteer before becoming a staff member in May 1999. She has made so many friends over her years at Peace Hospice Care, both within the charity itself and amongst the local community.  Many of them stepped forward to speak from the heart on her devotion to the job and the difference she has made by her fundraising. Peace Hospice Care Chief Executive Sue Plummer said ‘It was with great sadness that I announced Gill’s retirement. She has been with us for many years and undoubtedly helped the progression and growth of the Hospice.’ Appreciation was also  acknowledged from community fundraiser Elizabeth Timmons who with  Gill’s support set up the Irish & Holyrood Support Group who continue to fundraise for the Hospice. ‘She comes to every one of our events and really does so much. We just love her.’ Gill intends to keep in touch and admitted ‘this is probably the hardest decision I’ve had to make but it’s now time for me to rediscover my ironing board and how to cook!’ ‘I will miss so many people here but I am planning a fundraiser for the Hospice so will certainly be keeping in touch.’ Peace Hospice Care is dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients and families facing a life limiting illness by providing care and support in the setting of their choice. All services are delivered free of charge to patients in South West Hertfordshire by a highly skilled team of specialists. Do you want to pay tribute to Gill? Email tim@mynewsmag.co.uk
