It is with great sadness that Campden Home Nursing learned of the tragic death of Beatrice Corry, a much-loved volunteer at our charity shop in Lower High Street, Chipping Campden. Beatrice was an original volunteer and founding member of our shop, which opened in 2019, and was a very valued part of our volunteer team. Our staff and volunteers are all devastated by the news. Beatrice was a vivacious character with a kind and positive disposition, and a friend to all. She will be very greatly missed.
Helen Makaritis, CEO of Campden Home Nursing, said: “Beatrice was an incredible lady, she had so much energy and would regularly have completed a 5 mile walk before her shift in the shop. Described as a ‘force of nature’ by the shop team, she was always positive and never afraid to voice her opinion, a very intelligent lady who was knowledgeable about so many things. Never without a scarf or a twinkle in her eye, she was loved by us all.
“We are lucky to have many funny anecdotes and stories in our memory banks and she will be remembered with great affection. We send our heartfelt condolences to her family, especially her grandchildren, of whom she talked of often and with immense pride.”
