Frances Worsley wrote:From the moment I arrived at Intensive Care, St Thomas' Hospital on the 28th Feb, I was surrounded by caring, supportive (and practical) friends and neighbours from SE1. When Anne died on the 3rd March, I was overwhelmed with messages, letters and cards from the whole community, from MPs to the local mechanic who fixed Anne's little van. Donations to her favourite causes now exceed £300 that I know of, and may well be more. This generosity and concern reflect the affection and admiration which everyone seemed to have for Anne. I will always remember the sea of faces when I spoke at the Cathedral service, and the warmth of feeling expressed by so many at the reception afterwards. My family was very moved by the fact that the whole community seemed to be there to pay their respects. Thank you Southwark, I know Anne's work will not be forgotten.
