Jim Hopley

Chairman

Jim Hopley MBE

Jim has had a long and varied relationship with the Home initially as a carer when they provided help to his first wife and latterly as Chair, a position he has held for the past 10 years.

Jim has been an active campaigner of disability in all of its guises since retiring from a career in retail in 2011. However, due to his personal connection, the Cheshire home, its residents, external users and fantastic staff will always have first call on his time.
