In memory of Mr Norman Frisby JP DL

We were saddened to learn of the recent death of one of our founders and long serving member of the Board of Trustees (formally known as the hospice council), Mr Norman Frisby JP DL.

Norman was one of early the pioneers of the hospice movement, involved with fundraising for St Ann’s when it was established over 50 years ago.

Norman then stayed on the Board of our charity from 1969 until 1998, supporting the growth and expansion of services for patients and families locally.  He was also a trustee of Springhill Hospice in Rochdale

Rachel McMillan, our Chief Executive, said, “It is thanks to the hard work and forward thinking of Norman and his peers back in 1969, that we have been able to provide specialist end of life care for thousands of people over the past 50 years. We are honoured to have had the benefit of his support and expertise for many years.

“On behalf of the Chair and Board of Trustees, colleagues, patients and volunteers at St Ann’s, I should like to send condolences to Norman’s family and friends. He will be sadly missed, but we are hugely grateful for all of his help and support over many years.”
