Rene Garrard has been awarded the MBE, fantastic news! Rene does an incredible amount of work for charity.
Rene and her late husband retired in 1982 and got involved with the Bedford hospitals charity. Rene also did four years helping with the fund raising at St Johns Hospice at Moggerhanger.
Rene is still involved with the hospital fund raising and helps at the hospital bric a brac stall inside the hospital on Tuesdays and various other stalls.
Rene also supports the Bedford Guild House and did the reception desk a couple of times a week and was a trustee. Unfortunately Rene gave this up because of illness.
Rene’s husband died in 2008; he had done a lot of the lifting and carrying for the charity. He died in Bedford Hospital and Rene has only praise for the staff, they were wonderful.
That’s the reason Rene will be at Clapham Show ~ supporting both The Guild House and Bedford Hospital. Do go along and say hello – and congratulations!
