Earlier this month veteran Hospice volunteer Alan Stanley, 83 from Finchley, was awarded the London Borough of Barnet Civic Award in recognition for over 20 years of voluntary work for North London Hospice. Alan decided to volunteer for the Hospice after his daughter and wife were both looked after by the Hospice. “I am really honoured to have received this award. I can’t thank the Hospice enough for the fantastic care they gave both my wife and daughter. During my twenty years stint volunteering for the Hospice, I’ve been collecting money at events, writing letters to supporters and the list goes on. It’s a very special place which I hold dear to my heart, so it’s nice to be able to give something back.” Pollyanna Tucker who has taken part in various fundraising activities for the Hospice received an award in recognition of her “dedication and tireless charity work”, raising funds for the Hospice and other local charities. Her fundraising efforts have included walking over hot coals, sky diving, having her head shaved on three occasions and creating a plaster cast of her bottom.
