We are very sad to announce the passing of one of our Trustees  – Melanie Simmonds

6 December 2021

We are truly sad to announce the recent passing of one of our trustees whilst being cared for at Willowbrook Hospice.

Melanie Simmonds, a trustee with St. Bart’s Academy Trust for a number of years was also a trustee of Willowbrook Hospice and a retired NHS Board-level accountant. She had recently been admitted to the Hospice after being diagnosed with incurable cancer.

Melanie was a remarkable, special person who will be sadly missed by us all.

Our thoughts and condolences at this time go out to her husband, Alan and the family.

The amount of £929.50 was raised as a leaving donation for our retiring CEO, Chris Brislen and this was passed on to Willowbrook Hospice in memory of Melanie.

Chris stated that “Mel was a valued and well-loved member of our Trust Board and we are grateful for the care and dedication of all the Willowbrook staff who looked after Mel during her illness.”
