It is with a sad heart that we announce the death of Lady Cholmondeley who passed away peacefully in her sleep earlier this month on 7th November, she was aged 94.

Lady Cholmondeley had been Patron of our Hospice since we opened in 1988. Her support over the years and belief in the work we do was unwavering, we are honoured to have had her support over the past 27 years.

Lady Cholmondeley is pictured here in 1998 laying a key foundation stone as part of our extension which now houses the Day Hospice. She was so gracious and elegant, touching everyone with her warmth and generosity. Lady Cholmondeley will be missed by everyone at St Luke’s, we extend our thoughts and best wishes to her family at this sad time.
