On Friday 14th December Theresa and Sir Michael Parkinson were among the guests to celebrate the official opening of the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice in Maidenhead.
The purpose-built £7 million facility in Woodlands Park was devised by the Windsor based charity founders, John and Fiona Devine in 2007 after their eight-year-old son, Alex, died from a rare brain tumour.
At the opening Theresa said:
“I think today is a remarkable day and it’s reflecting not just the effort that’s been put in by Fiona and John over the years but a dedication, a commitment and a determination that I have never seen in anyone else."
“For all the children and families that are going to benefit, they will owe you an enormous debt of gratitude. Their lives will be improved, their lives will be given that comfort and that support and that hope because of your determination and conviction.”
