Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice

It is difficult to come to terms with the death of a loved one. For many people, even time doesn't completely heal.

Sadly, bereavement is something we will all experience at some point in our life and it can be very painful.

Often what people find is that giving in memory of their loved one is a way to give thanks for the life of the person who has died.

Sharing and remembering is all part of keeping their memory alive, and helping the hospice carry on the good work we do can also be a way of creating a legacy for the person who has died, so their spirit lives on through the work we do here.

Making a donation, setting up a tribute fund, having a collection at your loved one's funeral, leaving a gift in your will, taking part in one of our events or our annual Light Up a Life appeal, donating goods to our shops or giving your time are all ways you can give in memory.

A tribute to Jim Glennie

The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice lost a long-term and loyal supporter after the recent death of Jim Glennie, 64, from Stonehaven.

Over the years Jim has been involved in hospice walking events and this year entered the Arran Cycle Challenge with the Station Blue Hotel Eleven team, including his son Alan.

He has helped raise thousands of pounds for the hospice over the years and will be greatly missed by everyone in the hospice team who knew him.

Jim took part in the Speyside Challenge in 2009 as part of Team AXA, walking 54 miles along the Speyside Way. He did it again the following year as part of the Stonehaven Station Hotel Blue Eleven team.

In 2012 he was an integral member of the support crew at the same event for the Station Hotel Blue Eleven team, meeting them at checkpoints throughout the day and night, cooking for them and helping to keep them energised and motivated.

And at Three Lochs Way in 2016 he did the same, driving the support team mini bus and kept the team going with his wonderfully cooked curries.

Jim fell from his bike in Arran and later died from his injuries. Our heartfelt sympathies are with his family.
