Former Chief Executive Mary Rance dies


Contact the Elderly is extremely saddened to learn of the death of Mary Rance who was our Chief Executive from 2013-2017.

Mary’s friends and colleagues from across the charity are shocked and saddened by the news. Christian Grobel, chair of Contact the Elderly, said “Mary oversaw impressive growth of the organisation and led Contact the Elderly through our very successful 50th anniversary celebrations.  Her work here ensured that we have been able to grow and develop even more, enabling us to reach out and support many more isolated older people. Mary built strong, caring relationships with volunteers, staff, trustees, funders and all who met her in the course of her work. Mary will be greatly missed and we send our love and thoughts to Richard, her children and all her family."
