I learnt about the Mary Potter Hospice more than 20 years ago through the loss of a close mate who spent a very special time with his family in his last days. The Hospice inspired me then and continues to do so, and through the support of the Mary Potter Foundation, which I am honoured to serve to fund the highest possible quality of palliative care for those in need.
'It is a privilege to support the amazing staff and volunteers of The Mary Potter Foundation so that they can provide the highest quality care, in the most dignified way, at such a critical time in people's lives.
It's inspiring to know that I am contributing to a service that delivers such compassion and special moments for families to remember forever.'
'I am honoured to be able to contribute to the governance of The Mary Potter Foundation as a board member. The community relies on the incredible work of the palliative care teams and the compassionate and generous service that the Hospice provides to many South Australian families at a time when they are preparing to let go of their loved ones is a sincere credit to them.'
Sr Anne Sheridan – LCM
Sister Anne was appointed to the Board by the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary in July 2006.
'The Board and all those who support The Mary Potter Foundation work tirelessly to ensure sufficient finance and support can be made available to those who seek care in the Hospice and the community, demonstrating a commitment to the vision of Mary Potter of Being for Others, and I am proud to be a member of the Board.'
