A thank you
The Committee received a lovely thank you letter today from Averil Hart who received a Lifetime Achievement Award at our event last week.
“Thank you for the wonderful reception we all received at the luncheon to celebrate the Cheshire Woman of the Year Award 2016. The Committee for this event must have worked so hard to ensure the smooth running of the luncheon. Please thank all those concerned. Naturally I was delighted to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award and feel very proud that volunteers at St Ann’s have been recognised – this award is deserved by the eight hundred volunteers who work in so many aspects of the Hospice”.
