Meet our people
Meet some of the key people involved with Rennie Grove - our staff, volunteers and supporters all play a vital role
The Rennie Grove Hospice Care team
People are at the heart of all we do. Most importantly, the families we care for. But also the Rennie Grove team of staff and volunteers – and our amazing supporters – who make that care possible. We value each and every contribution and without everyone’s input, we couldn’t help the families who need us.
Rennie Grove’s Trustees are volunteers responsible for the charity’s governance. For example, our Board of Trustees comprises specialists in different sectors, from healthcare to marketing to business development and retail. They offer advice and approve big decisions such as our annual expenditure and income targets. Similarly, Trustees contribute to our three-year strategic plan. In addition, Rennie Grove’s Senior Management Team reports to the Trustees.
Still very much at the heart of the Rennie Grove team, our Presidents are Rennie Grove’s co-founders. That is to say, two local women, Moira Rennie and Dr Mary Groves, founded the charities that went on to become Rennie Grove Hospice Care. First Iain Rennie Hospice at Home launched in 1985 and then Grove House opened in 1994. Years later, the two charities merged (in 2011) and became Rennie Grove Hospice Care.
Our Patrons and Vice Patrons
Local celebrities in Herts and Bucks, and household names nationally, have kindly agreed to support us as our Patrons. Because of their high profile, our Patrons are an important part of the Rennie Grove team. And they play a key role in spreading the word about what we do to a wider audience. Vice Patrons are people who’ve made an extraordinary contribution to Rennie Grove. That may have been in the founding charities’ early days as Grove House or Iain Rennie Hospice at Home. Or through a more recent connection that has had a huge impact on the charity and the families we support.
Our Vice Presidents
Our Vice Presidents and members of the Presidents' Circle commit to making regular donations for a minimum of three years. Above all, their pledges of ongoing support make us more resilient and help us plan with confidence.Become a Vice President
