Remember Annie and her causes
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.
