Hope is a small charity based in Ross which aims to support anyone in Herefordshire aged 5-25 who has had a loved one diagnosed with a serious illness. It reaches beyond Herefordshire with a digital support service for anyone aged 11-25. The Founder and Chair is Sue Trevethan, and Michael Sharp has been the Chief executive for the last ten years.
Hope is well supported by local businesses and won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2015. On his recent visit to Ross, the Prince of Wales met and encouraged some of the Hope team at their stand near the Market House.
This event was held at the Courtyard in Hereford and was very well attended. There were speeches and performances before a black-tie dinner.
Hope is an outstanding charity providing a vital service to young people where there is a gap in other support.
