Adrian Williams, Chairman of Royal Trinity Hospice said: 

“I’m delighted that such outstanding candidates have agreed to become trustees and I really look forward to working with them.

Several recent and upcoming trustee retirements gave us the opportunity to renew and broaden our trustee bench while adding specific experience in areas relevant to our core operations.

I want to thank Geraldine, Felicity, David and William for their dedicated service as trustees over many years - particularly Geraldine who very kindly delayed her planned retirement from the board last year to help us through the first phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
