If you did not know Margaret, you have truly missed something special in your life.  Margaret Chadd was a very formidable lady with true ethos.

Palliative Care was dear to Margaret’s heart, as was CRUSE.  From the days with her dear friend Dame Cicely Saunders.  However much people tried to make her change her mind, Margaret would never move an inch.

An independent hospice for the community on its own land, with good parking and for people to have real choice to die with dignity in the place of their choice was Margaret’s goal.

We lost Margaret July 14th, 2018 aged 96.  ECH has suffered its greatest loss of a colleague and friend.  There are not enough words for me to personally express my loss of a dear mentor and friend.  This makes ECH more determined to build Margaret Chadd House.

Those we love don’t go away,

They walk beside us every day,

Unseen, unheard, But always near,

Still loved, Still missed And very dear”
