Help the hos­pice that helped my wife

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

MAY I through this col­umn say the fol­low­ing?

On 16th Au­gust 1991, my dear late wife Mrs Marie-Car­men Kirby died in the ten­der lov­ing care of Michael So­bell Hos­pice, Mount Ver­non Hos­pi­tal, North­wood, HA6 2RN.

In Au­gust of this year, I made a point of de­clin­ing presents for my 75th birth­day and be­sought in­stead fi­nan­cial gifts for the hos­pice.

The re­quest pro­duced about £1,600 plus and I wish to sin­cerely thank all those who con­trib­uted, those whom I have al­ready per­son­ally thanked and those whom I have not and whom I do not know.

The hos­pice has as­sured me that it costs about 1.6 mil­lion pounds per year to run to en­sure that residents are cared for with­out ex­pense.

If I may, I men­tion that any other con­tri­bu­tions to Michael So­bell Hos­pice are most welcome. ROBIN KIRBY The Fair­way Ruis­lip
