Condolences – Mrs Nicky Hammond

Dear Peterhouse Community,


It was with real sadness and sorrow that the Peterhouse community received the news of Mrs Nicky Hammond’s tragic passing in Harare on Sunday 9 May 2021.

Nicky, alongside her husband Simon, who is Chairman of the Peterhouse Board of Governors, was a long-time champion of Peterhouse, providing amazing support to the school in so many ways. Not only has Peterhouse lost an incredible friend, but so too, as the Eisteddfod Vocal and Instrumental Director, we as a school recognise that both the NIAA and Zimbabwe lose a real advocate and supporter of the Arts. Her passion for the school and the Arts in Zimbabwe was exemplified by the esteem and respect she gained in serving both of these communities.

Nicky leaves behind an incredible legacy of service. We, as a community, mourn her loss, and pay tribute to the enormity of all that she achieved.

To Simon [E/79], Philippa [PHG/10], Caroline [PHG/12], Joanna [PHG/16] and the whole Hammond and Paterson family, we extend our deepest sympathies and condolences at this very difficult and sad time.
