The following announcement has been made by Mrs Jennifer Beesley, Chairman of East Coast Hospice.
Since 2013/14, when Margaret asked me to come onboard, I have given East Coast Hospice my heart and soul 24/7.
During the last year, I have been poorly and am not getting any younger. Since my Bell’s Palsy last August, I have not made the progress I would have hoped for.
With the bullying and harassment from certain quarters, I cannot continue. I owe my family more. It is time for me to put them, and myself, first.
I want to thank all the wonderful staff and the support of our trustees, without you all I could not have achieved what I have done.
The hospice will be built with your support.
I wish you all well and fondest love.
" When my life is finally measured...
... in months, weeks, days, hours.
I want to live free of pain,
free of indignity, free of fear, free of loneliness.
Give me shelter, give me your hand.
Give me your care, your understanding, give me your love.
Then let me go peacefully, and help my family to understand."
