Meet our people

Meet some of the key people involved with Rennie Grove Peace - our staff, volunteers and supporters all play a vital role

The Rennie Grove Peace team

People are at the heart of all we do. Most importantly, the families we care for. But also the Rennie Grove Peace team of staff and volunteers – and our amazing supporters – who make that care possible. We value each and every contribution and without everyone’s input, we couldn’t help the families who need us.

Our trustees

The Rennie Grove Peace Trustees are volunteers responsible for the charity’s governance. For example, our Board of Trustees comprises specialists in different sectors, from healthcare to marketing to business development and retail. They offer advice and approve big decisions such as our annual expenditure and income targets. Similarly, Trustees contribute to our three-year strategic plan. In addition, our Executive Board reports to the Trustees.

Our Presidents

Our Presidents are at the very heart of the charity – Moira Rennie MBE, Dr Mary Groves MBE, and Professor Stephen Spiro OBE. Moira is the widow of the very first patient, Iain Rennie, after whom Iain Rennie Hospice at Home was named. Mary was instrumental in launching the appeal that created Grove House in St Albans, recognising a need for specialist cancer services in the area. Stephen was Chair of the Board of Trustees at Rennie Grove Peace where he was the driving force in transforming hospice care and ensuring more people than ever had access to its services.

Our Patrons and Vice Patrons

Local celebrities in Herts and Bucks, and household names nationally, have kindly agreed to support us as our Patrons. Because of their high profile, our Patrons are an important part of the Rennie Grove team. And they play a key role in spreading the word about what we do to a wider audience. Vice Patrons are people who’ve made an extraordinary contribution to Rennie Grove Peace. That may have been in the founding charities’ early days as Grove House or Iain Rennie Hospice at Home. Or through a more recent connection that has had a huge impact on the charity and the families we support.
