In memory of Margaret Grose
This weekend Margaret Grose passed away.
Many Beatles tourists to Liverpool will have met Margaret. She was the old lady who resided in Ringo Starr’s childhood home at 10, Admiral Grove, and she willingly opened her home for Beatles tourists who wanted to come inside. She never wanted any money to do this, but kindly asked her guests to donate to her favourite charity, the Linda McCartney Centre. Over the years, she collected £10,000.
One of Margaret’s good friends was Jackie Spencer, who is a guide in the Beatles city: “Margaret was such a wonderful ambassador for Liverpool, welcoming Beatles Fans into Ringo Starr’s former home, and in return for a donation to the Linda McCartney Centre. Now Margaret is no longer with us, In her memory I would love to match the figure she has already raised with her unique hospitality, RIP Margaret. Beatles fans around the World will miss you.”
The funds raised will go to purchase specialist equipment and improve facilities for patients and staff at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals.
