Re­mem­ber An­nie and her causes

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

SOME of your read­ers may re­mem­ber a for­mer Ac­ton res­i­dent An­nie Co­p­ley who later moved to Hayes where she was keen to share tales of her nurs­ing days in Scot­land and also her time spent work­ing with spe­cial needs chil­dren in Eal­ing bor­ough be­fore she re­tired.

She con­tin­ued to show em­pa­thy to more vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple and helped to en­cour­age her grand­chil­dren to grow up with a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude to­wards phys­i­cal and learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties teach­ing them to re­spect oth­ers in the same way she did draw­ing peo­ple to her with her warm and friendly per­son­al­ity.

Sadly she passed away in Septem­ber 2014 but £40 was do­nated to Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port and £220 to Marie Curie Can­cer Care in her mem­ory.

The lat­ter was a cause close to her own heart and as March is Marie Curie Daf­fodil Ap­peal month I’d urge peo­ple to buy a daf­fodil pin or make a do­na­tion to this char­ity to en­able more peo­ple with life lim­it­ing ill­nesses to be cared for at home just as she was thanks to her lov­ing and ded­i­cated fam­ily.
