Meet Jim Brown

A former cruise-ship jeweler, Jim also played piano on the Cunard line, before discovering his calling to help keep Strathcarron Hospice afloat financially. It’s a big ask – with running costs over 6 million, and NHS grants of £2.4, he and the fundraising team have to raise 3.9 million pounds every year in this predominantly working class area. They do it because they love to look after their community of patients with great food, beautiful surroundings, and a staff to patient ratio that means everyone has time to talk, to listen, and to create the memories that make Strathcarron special.

Here's a clip with Jim from Seven Songs from a Long Life:
