A FOUNDING trustee at Bluebell Wood has been shortlisted for a national prize.
Anne Fowlie, vice chairman at the North Anston children’s hospice, is up for the Beyond Governance title at the 3rd Sector Care Awards.
Anne has been involved with Bluebell Wood since its 1998 launch, helping to secure community support, research suitable sites and plan the building.
As a teacher in Doncaster supporting children with severe and complex needs, she was one of a group who saw the need for a hospice to help families.
And she has since supported the charity in continuing to meet those needs — with services like respite care, counselling, music therapy and sibling support.
Bluebell Wood chief executive Claire Rintoul said: “As with all our trustees, Anne has always been a custodian of the vision and purpose of the hospice.
“She ensures we hold true to our vision to do our very best at all times for children and families.
"Anne has brought her skills, knowledge and experience from working with children with additional needs and in education to her trustee role.
“It’s very exciting that Anne has been shortlisted in these very worthy awards. We all wish her the very best of luck.”
The awards, which are run by social care magazine Care Management Matters, take place in London on December 6.
