I met Fred initially through Dinah, who was Treasurer for the St Agnes Fundraising Group, as Groups Co-ordinator I had the pleasure to meet Fred whilst calling on Dinah at home. Fred continued to give the group support after Dinah’s passing as Treasurer and an active member of the group which meant I had regular contact with him. He played a huge part at the Hospice events, mainly on the raffle table making sure no one got past him without buying a raffle ticket.
In the past couple of years Fred became a good friend and I visited when I could and when he was able, looking forward to our chats and seeing Poochie, his beloved companion. I am so pleased he called me from Mount Edgcumbe to say how well they were looking after him and thanking me for my input. He was a very proud and private man, his legacy will live on in all the support he gave to St Julias especially, and the St Agnes Group. Rest in Peace Fred, back together again with the lovely Dinah x
