Celebrating Trustees’ Week 4th – 8th November

Posted by Claire Cosgrove

This week we are celebrating Trustees’ Week which is an annual event showcasing the great work that trustees do and highlights opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.
Trustees play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity’s work – a big thank you to all our Trustees for their time and support.
We asked Louise Burgess to explain what motivated her to become a Trustee of Hope for Tomorrow:

“It’s hard to find anyone not touched by cancer, and I’m no exception. Watching people you love struggle to cope with this vicious illness and the gruelling treatment is almost unbearable, leaving you feeling completely helpless. This was all the motivation I needed to want to help. Working as a Trustee for Hope for Tomorrow cancer charity allows me to use my work experience to help them make a real difference to the lives of thousands of cancer patients and their families up and down the country.

I know how exhausting, time consuming and arduous trekking miles to a big hospital for each treatment can be. Hope for Tomorrow works in partnership with the NHS to bring cancer treatments closer to home or work so people being treated for cancer can get through their treatment quickly, and get back to their families and their lives. The more young adults, Mum’s, Dad’s, Gran’s, Grandad’s and friends that have time and energy for their loved ones and their lives, the better. Every treatment we help deliver is time saved for someone to live their life. Knowing that is all the reward I need.”
