On the 17th May we lost our long time volunteer, friend and mother figure to many Mary Hoare.
Mary had supported our organisation for many decades and dedicated her time to caring for those less fortunate than herself. It seems only fitting in National Volunteers week to pay tribute to a very special lady who’s smile and personality lit up many a darkened room.
We will miss her unusual sense of dress, her big hugs and of course the ear bashings!!! BIA will be marking Mary's dedication to the charity in the very near future, but in the meantime may she rest in peace.
Gone but not forgotten.
