Stewart said, “Since joining Rennie Grove, in February 2018, I have been immensely impressed by the passion and commitment I have encountered for the vital care that we provide for local families. I have had the pleasure of meeting many enthusiastic volunteers who give so generously of their time performing essential roles across the charity and working tirelessly alongside staff colleagues to ensure that Rennie Grove is as efficient and effective as possible.
I have also been privileged to meet a large number of our supporters. Their belief in what we do and loyalty to the cause is remarkable. It is important for us to show how much we need and value this ongoing support as we strive to fund the increasing demand for our care. Reductions in statutory funding has become a reality for hospices and we are no exception, making ongoing support even more important.”
