Death of Gillian Ward
We regret to announce the death of our trustee, loyal supporter and dear friend, Gillian Ward ( Deddie Davis). Gillian will be known to many for her acting career in countless roles, The Railway Children, Pride, Miss Marple, Stella but to name a few.
We shared many adventures in our under-cover work. Twice Gillian went into care homes as a resident, to play the part of the defenceless and voiceless took amazing courage. I miss her so much, her encouragement, friendship and ability to be up for an adventure at a minutes notice. Compassion in Care is an extraordinary Charity and Gillian was an extraordinary trustee who helped us to shine a light on the abuse of vulnerable people, The work goes on and I know Gillian as always will be cheering us on.
