“I have always been into music and have played the guitar since I was 16. I love rock ‘n’ roll especially the greats like Buddy Holly and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and I also like classical music too. It was great having my guitar with me during my stay.”
Ronnie encouraged people not to be anxious about visiting or staying at a hospice should they or their loved ones ever need it.
He explained: “My daughter Annie works at St Catherine’s in the lymphoedema service at The Woodside Clinic and she told me there was nothing to worry about when coming to stay – but even then I was still a bit nervous, so I can appreciate that people might not like the idea of coming.
“But there really is nothing to be frightened of. Everyone at St Catherine’s is brilliant – the doctors, nurses, housekeepers, everyone. They all go out of their way for you.”
