ellenor Trustee honoured in regional awards

Mo Tutty has been named Trustee of the Year at the Kent Charity Awards. Tutty has been a trustee at the charity ellenor for the last seven years, becoming chairman of the board of trustees in 2014.

ellenor provides specialist palliative care, social, emotional and spiritual support for both adults and children needing end of life care, as well as their families.

On receiving the award, Tutty said:

“I was very surprised but felt incredibly proud to be recognised in this way. I know my contribution is so small compared with the fantastic work all our staff and volunteers undertake every single day. I think this award is recognition of the fantastic work we all do and should be shared with everyone at ellenor.”

During his acceptance speech, Mo paid tribute to the care his own father received from ellenor 20 years ago. He said:

“I will be eternally grateful for the care, dignity and consideration afforded to him and the rest of the family during his final few days,” Mo explains. “After a long and very painful, unpleasant illness he died in peace and comfort, surrounded by his family. This experience left a lasting impression upon me.”

Judges noted that aside from his role as chairman he takes part in the charity’s practical activities.  Last year he took part in an Iceland trek, which involved five challenging days of hiking and climbing to the top of Eyjafjallajokull.
