Sad loss of a true Compact Champion

Chris Frost, Compact Voice board member and Chief Executive of Merton Voluntary Service Council, sadly passed away on Thursday morning.

Chris accepted the Compact Chair's Award on behalf of the Merton Compact at the 2013 Compact Awards on Wednesday night.

It was the ninth successive year that the Merton Compact had won an award at the Compact Awards.

Chris was an enthusiastic, genuine and passionate champion of the voluntary sector. She was a tireless advocate of partnership working.

For over 30 years, Chris was instrumental in improving the way that different sectors work together. Her enthusiasm was infectious and inspiring to all who met her and her leadership set an example for many others, helping to make a difference not just in Merton but nationally.


Simon Blake, Chair of Compact Voice, said

"It was an absolute joy to work with Chris. She was a radiant optimist and the biggest advocate of the voluntary sector and of the Compact. She was an extremely valued colleague and board member over the past 6 years."

The legacy of her contribution to the voluntary sector in Merton will continue. Our thoughts are with her family and friends and all those in Merton who knew and worked with her - the Compact Voice team will all miss her very much.
