Memorial lunch proved to be a fitting tribute

CAN I please give a heartfelt thanks to the chairman and committee of the charity SAFE ( 1073504) and to all the people who attended the first memorial lunch organised recently in honour of my dear late husband Roy Edwin Tucker.

It was a wonderful tribute to a very good man and my family and I are delighted that it is to be an annual event.

SAFE was the brainchild of Roy Tucker CEO of St Michael’s Hospice at the time and Matron of St Augustine’s Nursing Home Johanna Giles who did such sterling work in helping to make SAFE the splendid success it is today.

Special thanks also to Radio Two DJ Alex Lester, who is also the President of SAFE, who gave a wonderful speech in Roy’s memory and did a great job with the raffle, which was a lot of fun.

He also presented a parting gift to long-serving committee member Sally Holt, who is moving to Wiltshire.

Finally, thanks to you Roy, for bringing us all together for a memorable and richly deserved afternoon - rest in peace - your Anne.

Anne Tucker,

Centurion Rise
