gillI am delighted to be able to inform you that Gill Rouse our Director was awarded the “Hero in the Community” award at the Heart of Gloucestershire awards on Wednesday 11th June.  

A number of LINC staff, Trustees and Gill’s family attended the lunchtime ceremony at the Hatherley Manor Hotel that was presented by Valerie Singleton (of Blue Peter and TV fame). This ceremony was well organised and followed similar lines to the Oscars ceremony in that a short film was played about each and every nominee. There were 12 categories with 3 finalists in each category. Gill was nominated as a “Hero in the Community” and was shortlisted to the final 3 some weeks ago. As we waited for the announcement it was very clear that all nominations were incredibly deserving and the judges must have had a very difficult discussion before Gill’s name was read out.

I am sure you will agree with us that this is a most deserving honour for Gill’s hard work for LINC and patients in the locality over the past 16 years…. Well done Gill and well done LINC.

Stephan Bates,
Chair of Trustees
