"I am passionate about the support that Helen's Trust provides and we are so lucky that we have access to this help in our community. My Dad died at home in an area where this kind of support was not on offer and I know it would have eased the pressure and stress if it had been available. It is so important for people to have a choice and although an upsetting time, the positive impact of achieving this can be invaluable to loved ones."
Rosie Aston | Community Engagement & Fundraising Officer
Born and raised in Birmingham Rosie studied for her BA (Hons) in Humanities and worked for many years in advertising, marketing and PR in Manchester and Nottingham before becoming freelance in 1998. In 2008 she and her family moved to Buxton where she worked for 7 years as a Press Officer and Photographer for a Local Education Authority before establishing her own small floristry business.
“Helen’s Trust were there for my family when my husband was terminally ill and we were desperate for some practical support to help us care for him at home. I will always be grateful for the help we received and it is now a privilege to work for a charity which I know makes such a difference at an emotionally difficult and often distressing time."
Emily Ingram | Events Officer
After completing her BA (Hons) in Fashion Management, Emily began her career working at Nottingham Trent University as an Events and Marketing Coordinator. During her time at University, she took part in two Great North Runs and the Chesterfield Marathon relay to raise money for Helen’s Trust.
“I became aware of Helen’s Trust at secondary school where Helen’s Trust was the sixth forms chosen charity. During this time, I learnt the impact that Helen’s Trust has to those with a terminal illness wishing to remain at home and the significance of this care to those caring for their loved ones at home.”
