The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House welcomes Tim How as their new Chair of Trustees as Felicity Lyons steps down in August.

Felicity, who has been a Trustee at the Hospice for six years, becoming Chair of Trustees three years ago, said:

“It has been an honour to serve the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House as Chair of a dedicated Board of Trustees, and it is with great pleasure and confidence that I now hand over to my successor, Tim How.

“Tim brings a wealth of experience along with a commitment to the essential values of the hospice movement, which will ensure that Lyndsay Carter and her excellent team have the support and guidance they need to continue to develop and expand our vital hospice services.”

Tim How said:

“I am delighted to become Chair of Trustees. I never fail to be impressed by the great staff at the Hospice. I very much look forward to working with them to provide choice and access to excellent end of life and bereavement care.”

Tim joined the Board of Trustees in 2019 as a member of the Finance and Investment Committee and became Chairman of that committee and Vice Chair of Trustees in November 2020.

After a degree in Natural Sciences, Tim spent most of his career in retail. From 1989 to 2008, he was Chief Executive of Majestic Wine plc. He is currently Chairman of Roys of Wroxham Ltd and was a Director of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust from 2013 until 2020.

Lyndsay Carter, Chief Executive at The Norfolk Hospice, stated:

“I wish Felicity every success in the future and thank her for the support and leadership she has provided to the Hospice over the last three years. I look forward to working with Tim in his new role as the Hospice continues to develop and grow.”
