Lady Pip Bolton

Absent Friend Award For True Dedication to Help for Heroes and Phoenix House

Lord and Lady Bolton of Bolton Hall in Wensleydale have been supporters of Help for Heroes for many years; offering local knowledge and opening doors to assist Phoenix House Recovery Centre. Lady Pip Bolton was a great friend to the Charity.  She is very highly regarded not only for her charitable work in the community, but also for her warmth, hospitality and positive attitude.  With her eldest son a veteran, Pip appreciated the work of the Charity and was keen to do something to help.  She joined the committee of the Catterick Winter Ball which took place in November 2014 and through her influence, persuasion and contacts, worked tirelessly to make the Ball a success.  Very sadly, Pip died earlier this year after a short illness.

The team at Phoenix House feel that loss greatly, she continued to be a great supporter and a great friend up until her death.
