Leon Crouch, a lifelong supporter of Oakhaven Hospice, sadly lost his life following a short battle with cancer in September 2019 surrounded by his loving family. A private, gentle man, Leon supported the Hospice in many ways but most publically as the sponsor of our Oakhaven Golf Day, competing on the day for the Fullers Cup.
Chief Executive Andrew Ryde said ‘Leon was deeply committed to the Hospice and has made a lasting impact on Oakhaven. We are so grateful that he included a gift in his will, his legacy will make a very real difference to those we care for both here in the hospice and out in homes across our community.’
Leon’s daughters Hannah Leonardi, Lara Crouch and Louise Rolls presented the cheque to Oakhaven in November at a special event where they were presented with an engraved leaf by Chairman of The Board of Trustees, Professor Paul Dodson and Patron, The Honourable Mary Montagu-Scott DL in honour their father’s contribution to the Hospice. Hannah Leonardi said ‘we are thrilled to be able to honour our fathers wishes and present Oakhaven with his legacy, which we hope will help others in the community who are in need of the specialist care that Oakhaven provides. We as a family are incredibly thankful for everything the Hospice did to support us and our beloved father’
