Helen Rachel Cadbury, 24 March 1965-30 June 2017

The Trust is very sad indeed to report that our Chair, Helen Cadbury, died from cancer on Friday, in York where she lived with her family.

Helen was a sparkling person of many talents.  An actor, an acclaimed crime fiction writer, a poet, a teacher in schools and prisons, a partner, a mother, an active Quaker and a steadfast champion of philanthropy and social justice.

We will be posting a fuller obituary in due course and meanwhile thank people for their messages of condolence.

Anna Southall will step in as our Interim Chair while the board considers the issue of succession.
