Pat awarded League of Mercy

Pat awarded League of Mercy

All at ACCORD were delighted to hear the news that our very own long standing supporter and   volunteer, Mrs Pat Strachan was awarded the Order of Mercy award in 2021 from The League of Mercy Foundation, awarded in honour of her dedicated and tireless commitment to volunteering at ACCORD.

Pat was among the very early supporters of the ACCORD movement and has been an active fundraiser, supporter and volunteer in differing forms for over 35 years.


As one of the leaders of the inception of the Paisley friends of ACCORD group, Pat led and co-ordinated many fundraising events and initiatives and has secured considerable amounts of financial support for the Hospice over the years. That support is so appreciated…but that wasn’t all.

Pat is also well known in the Hospice building as a volunteer receptionist and volunteer gardener. Her welcome smile and calm, kind demeanour has always put relatives and visitors at ease.

Pat’s time committed to ACCORD over the years runs to thousands of hours and we are grateful and have always thought she deserved a medal. We are indeed delighted that the League of Mercy agreed with us.

Congratulations Pat.. and thank you from all of us.
