Peace Hospice Care is delighted to announce Patrick Brennan as its new Chairman. Patrick took office at the Annual General Meeting on 5th September and replaces David Ellis OBE who stood down at the end of his term of office, after six years in the role.

Patrick has worked in Banking and Financial Services for more than 30 years. He was invited to join the Investment and Advocacy Board supporting Hertfordshire's Local Enterprise Partnership. He has also chaired the Hertford and Ware Business Advisory Group run in conjunction with the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce.

David Ellis OBE, past Chairman of Trustees at Peace Hospice Care, said: "As a Trustee Patrick has been committed to the charity and provided invaluable leadership, insight and scrutiny. I am sure that he will have the opportunity to make an even greater contribution in his role as Chairman and I look forward to supporting him in that.

Speaking about the appointment, Patrick Brennan said: "I would like to thank David for his outstanding contribution and for the support he has given to Peace Hospice Care to the other Trustees and to staff and volunteers. Peace Hospice Care has faced challenging times in the past but David's leadership has set the charity on a positive and confident path and I'm keen to build on the solid foundations that have been established.

"It is an honour and a privilege to be Chairman of Trustees of Peace Hospice Care. I'm looking forward to working with the other Trustees, senior management team, staff and volunteers to help steer the charity onwards. We will continue to strive in reaching out to the community, helping many more people and maintaining the outstanding standards of care for which we are known.
