Today Trinity was excited to meet Jim Carter, most famous for his role as Carson on Downtown Abbey, who visited the hospice this afternoon. Jim was at Trinity to listen to the inspirational speech by humanitarian aid worker Linda Cruse.

Jim and Linda had a tour of the hospice and afterwards Jim kindly stopped for a photo with one of Trinity’s volunteers, Ruby (pictured). End of life care is already a cause close to Jim’s heart as he is a patron of Richard House Children’s Hospice in East London.

Linda delivered her talk at the hospice as part of a programme of Inspirational Lunchtime Talks for hospice staff and volunteers. So far this year the hospice has also hosted Mind Apples founder Andy Gibson and transgender campaigner Ayla Holdom.
