I am stepping down but I’ll keep involved with charity

I have been a part of the Butterfly Hospice for the last eleven years since that initial dream of the completion of our wonderful building.

I feel that now is the right time for me to step down from my role as company secretary.

I have worked with the trustees to find and appoint a new hospice manager who will take up the post in January. I know the hospice and the charity will be in good hands under the new leadership.

I am delighted to say that during last eleven years we have achieved so much and I thank all those who have worked alongside me.

I have also received tremendous support from my friends and family and I have to say a very special thank you to our board of trustees.

I am pleased to say I will definitely not be severing my ties with the Butterfly Hospice and I will continue to be an ambassador and volunteer.

Finally, our charity would not exist if it were not for the many volunteers who work tirelessly.

My biggest thanks and praise must go to you, whether in the Boston or Spalding shops, the warehouse, the office, outside in our garden, part of the fundraising teams or on the trustee board.

Our vision has always been to support local people with life limiting illnesses to live as normal a life as possible – over £1.5 million has been donated to build and equip our own in-patient hospice. Let’s embrace the future and all of its challenges together, raising funds, this time to support our bed provision and drop-in support centre.
