Joanne Jones, Head of Wills, Trusts and Probate department at Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers has been appointed as a trustee on the Board of Trustees for Dr Kershaw’s Hospice.

Based in Royton, Dr Kershaw’s Hospice provides a range of services tailored to those within our community living with life-limiting illness, as well as their families.

One of the big key charities in our town, Dr Kershaw’s Hospice needs the support of local people in order to function every day.    Over the years we have worked with Dr Kershaw’s Hospice in many ways from fundraising, attending their events to supporting their Will weeks

Jo says, “Dr Kershaw’s Hospice is a great local charity with a great presence in our town.  Dr Kershaw’s Hospice is a cause close to home for a lot of our clients, many of whom have had close family and friends who have spent their last days there.

We hear such great things about the care that patients receive that I didn’t hesitate to accept when I was invited to join the board.  I’m really looking forward to working with them in this voluntary capacity.”

The role of the board is to ensure that the charity functions within the law and in accordance with the Charity Commission rules, resources are managed efficiently, that there is a clear overall strategy and vision and that policies and procedures are in place to managed risk.
