This is a sad month for me. My colleague and friend Rev’d Andrew Fisher will be leaving the Trust at the end of August. Andrew has been the Chaplain at the Alexandra Hospital and they love him there. And no wonder- his devotion to service, kindness and compassion to patients and staff alike, and his bad jokes have won him lost of admirers.
Tomorrow is Andrew’s leaving do. There will be his final communion service at 10:30am in the Multi Faith Prayer Room at the Alex (just by the main entrance) and then a leaving party afterwards starting at 11:30pm.
Do try and come along to one or both of these, where we will present Andrew with a leaving gift, and no doubt he will have a few words and a bad joke to share with us!
There are also two other things you might like to do.
1) If you want to contribute to his leaving present please give your donations to Switchboard at the Alex. Ruth has gone out of her way to scoot round the wards but she may have missed you. They would be delighted to recieve your gift.
2) If you would like to comment publicly about Andrew’s ministry at the hospital then please use the comment box below, so that everyone can see what a valuable job he has done. I know that many of you have already sent him emails but do a dd a comment below.Andrew goes with our good wishes. It’s a personal sadness to me. He has been a fantastic colleague, a good friend, and I shall miss him.
