Tribute to Pam Brown

Hastings lost one of its true community champions with the death of Pam Brown last week. 

With commitment and passion Pam supported a range of causes close to her heart from homelessness to the support of older people and families.  It says a lot about her commitment that at the age of 99 she was still involved with the fight to save Isabel Blackman Centre and became a trustee of the charity which acquired and refurbished this essential community resource.

Pam was a huge supporter of HVA's work and was one of our trustees for many years. 

Our thoughts are with Pam’s family friends and colleagues at this sad time. They will no doubt be touched by the many tributes being received such as this one from Steve Hare, CEO of AgeUK East Sussex, who worked with Pam over many years:-

"Pam was a truly remarkable woman. Her intelligence, determination, humour and compassion made her an amazing ambassador for older people and the many issues faced locally. I have lost count of the times we've been side by side fighting to improve things. Those occassions Pam challenged and encouraged me and Age UK East Sussex to do even more will also stick with me. I will miss her."
