President Elect, Steve Grimwood, presenting a cheque to Sarah Millierick & Valerie Kruse, from Marie Curie for their Daffodil Appeal. They gave an interesting and detailed explanation of the work of their charity of which 33% is with non-cancer patients. It is a sobering thought that every 5 minutes in the UK somebody dies without having received care. The charity now runs 9 hospices and a careline. They are also consulted by government, which is just as well, as the original ‘grand plan’ for a revised National Health Service made no provisional at all for healthcare. Needless to say that omission has been addressed following consultation.
