Georgie Grindlay 1947-2014
Very sadly on 3rd April 2014, Georgie Grindlay – former DCC Administrator – passed away following a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer last year. Georgie was a big part of the Dimbleby Cancer Care story over the last decade, playing a key role in establishing and administering the DCC Research Fund.
Jonathan Dimbleby – for whom she worked for a number of years prior to her work at the charity – paid tribute to her contribution to the charity and determination:
“Georgie’s commitment to DCC as our administrator was unstinting. She was gifted with a range of talents for which, as trustees, we were deeply indebted. She brought to the challenge of running a small charity, a sharp intellect and an invaluable readiness to speak her mind when it mattered. She was both wise and kind. She seemed never to think of herself; her focus was always on others. She was driven by a compassion for those facing the challenge of cancer that shaped her whole approach to DCC’s task. She will remembered with affection and gratitude by those in the teams working on the front line at Guys and St Thomas’ who were beneficiaries of her gentle but tough-minded wisdom.”
She will be missed by all of us who worked with her and our sympathies go to her husband Tony and daughter Sam.
Georgie’s family have asked that in accordance with her wishes donations in her memory should be sent either to Dimbleby Cancer Care www.dimblebycancercare.org/donate or 020 7188 7889) or St Christopher’s Hospice (www.stchristophers.org.uk/donate or 020 8768 4575).
