It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Chairman Robert Clegg OBE. Robert’s outstanding contribution and unwavering dedication to Springhill Hospice spanned over 30 years. His charitable work was well known across the borough including his role as Chair of the Board at Hopwood Hall College.
His support for the Hospice dates back to the 1980’s when he became involved in fundraising for the Hospice to be built alongside founder, Margaret Geogehgan MBE. Robert had a passion for end of life care and making sure Springhill stayed at the forefront of palliative care.
Robert was always a familiar face at Springhill known by all and he will be dearly missed by trustees, staff, volunteers and supporters alike. We will miss his quick wit, his stories for every occasion and the way he made time for absolutely everyone.
His death is a great loss to both Springhill Hospice and the wider community.
Our thoughts are with his lovely family and friends at this very difficult time.
