CRASH welcomes Trisha Pickersgill as Chief Executive

CRASH charity is delighted to announce the appointment of Trisha Pickersgill as Chief Executive from 1 May 2024.

Trisha has 18 years’ experience in hospice management and care, having held several senior roles at Rennie Grove Peace Hospice most recently, as Director of Business Development, Operations and Performance.

Trisha has a wealth of knowledge of all aspects of hospice management, including income generation and clinical service delivery.

CRASH has worked with Rennie Grove Peace Hospice since 2017, supporting two construction projects; the major refurbishment of their ground floor day hospice and design and build of a car park extension. Trisha was the internal lead for these two projects, and it was thanks to her remarkable collaboration during the project process and her passion for delivering exceptional hospice care that led to Trisha receiving the Tony Denison Award in 2021. An exceptional honour in memory of the late Tony Denison, founder of CRASH.

“The generosity of the CRASH Corporate Patrons, offering their expertise, products and annual donations saves charities significant sums, and ensures valuable monies are spent on delivering their vital services. The work CRASH and the Corporate Patron companies do is invaluable to the charity sector as they do not have access to the specialist skills that CRASH, and their network of Corporate Patrons can provide. CRASH is a charity I have an inordinate amount of respect for and admire how much they achieve with such a small, dedicated team. I am thrilled and delighted to have been successful in the recruitment process and hope that CRASH can continue to go from strength to strength supporting homelessness and hospice projects long into the future.”
