"I became a trustee partly as a result of care that my mother-in-law received when she died as a result of breast cancer in Australia in 1992.
"A local charity provided residential nursing care in Margaret's home for the last 6 weeks of her life. While this isn't the Rennie Grove model, the reassurance and comfort that the nurse was able to provide to Margaret and to the wider family was hugely valuable and it enabled Margaret to die at home, with her family with her.
"Being able to support Rennie Grove provide an equivalent service is very important to me, and I am hugely grateful that I've been given the opportunity to contribute to a charity that provides such a wonderful service to families and patients at very difficult times in their life."
