Mrs Jean Kingdon has been a supporter of Hospiscare since its inception in 1982, and lives in East Devon. Jean was a leading member of the committee that raised the funds for the hospice that was built in 1992. She has fond memories of that committee because, as well as achieving its objective, it was there that she met her late husband, Mr Peter Kingdon.
Jean is a business woman and runs commercial property company in the South West. She still keeps a weather eye on it even though her daughter now runs it on day to day basis. Jean regularly arranges fundraising lunches for Hospiscare and she has kindly opened her home for tea parties organised by the local Hospiscare support group, Otter Vale Friends of Hospiscare.
