My working life has been spent in Cornwall and being a non-practising Solicitor, having now retired as a partner from Coodes Solicitors, I have taken the opportunity to apply my skills in support of Cornwall Hospice Care as one of its Trustees.

I know from my professional career how important strong community connections are in Cornwall, and having lived in the County for 35 years, I look forward to offering Cornwall Hospice Care my knowledge of the community in which it plays such a valuable role.

Over the years I, like many have seen family and friends benefit from the very best care offered by our Cornish hospices at St Austell and Hayle and now, as a Trustee, I can do my part in ensuring that this care will  be available across the County long into the future.
