We are very sorry to bring you the sad news of the passing of Robin Simpson, the Chairman of the Royal Hospital Donnybrook on Saturday 27th of April.Robin made an immense voluntary contribution to the Hospital over many years on the Board and then as Chairman. He was also hugely influential in leading developments as Chairman of the Royal’s Voluntary Housing Association. He devoted very significant time and dedication to the Hospital in recent years and in particular last year prior to the recruitment of the new CEO. He was also a regular and generous supporter of the Friends and all of the fundraising initiatives carried on in support of the Hospital. He will be very fondly remembered and sorely missed around the Hospital.On behalf of the Friends, we extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Nuala, and his sons James, Andrew, Harry, St. John and their mother Garry, step-son Cillian, his brothers John and David, his sister Anne, and his grandchildren Christopher, Emily, Arthur, Charlotte and Jamie.
The Friends are delighted with the arrival of 6 new High Support Wheelchairs for the patients in The Royal Hospital Donnybrook.
Many thanks to the Dublin Welsh Male Voice Choir for their generous donation to The Friends
