In loving memory of Nancy Dorothy O'Connell who peacefully passed away on 13th October 2015. Beloved wife of the late Brian and a much loved mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

Donations will benefit the Evelina Children's Hospital which so professionally and compassionately cared for Ollie, Nancy's little great grandson.

From 1948 to 1974 she was deeply involved in the Garrison Players, The Hong Kong Stage Club, created the Hong Kong Youth Orchestra, wrote the first sex education programme for a Hong Kong school, was involved in the creation of the Hong Kong Annual Music Festival for schools. Although an educator with unique teaching skills, her main passion was opening up the world to, 'and life chances of, the children she taught. Each year she supported the equivalent of a hockey team to Oxbridge, Vassar and Columbia USA. Right up until last year when she raised enough funds to buy two sports wheel chairs for Help for Heroes, she vigorously supported local projects.
