Statement from the Chair of Trustees
We are pleased that justice has been served today. Butterwick Hospice Care was created by one courageous, inspirational woman, Mary Butterwick and if she were with us today she would encourage us to stand tall and move forward - this is exactly what we plan to do. We are here to provide services to children, adults and their families when they are in need of holistic care as a consequence of a life limiting condition and for the past 34 years this is what we have done, for volunteers and staff at the Butterwick it is ‘business as usual’.
We appointed a new Chief Executive last year, and have reviewed our governance structures and processes.
Following last month’s Court case we have been moved by the overwhelming support of our local community who are ‘backing the Butterwick’ and returning to support this much loved local charity.
