We are heartbroken and so incredibly sad to announce that our remaining founder trustee Mr Vic Hardy MBE has sadly passed away aged 98.
Words cant express how we are feeling today and our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
It was very fitting that as his health deteriorated he became a hospice patient and benefitted from the service he did so much to provide for our community.
A true legend of a man who is loved and respected by so many people, his dedication and passion was felt throughout our community and Im sure everyone will have their own tale to tell.
It was Vics wishes that we celebrate his life and his achievements and do not mourn his passing for long but continue to uphold his legacy which is Lakelands Hospice, nothing would make him prouder.
There will be a Book of Celebration in the Hospice reception for people to write a message in memory of our inspiration Vic Hardy.
In accordance with Vic and his families wishes donations in lieu of flowers be made to Lakelands Hospice
