Helen Horne, who I knew as chair of Healthwatch Cumbria, passed away a couple of weeks ago and her funeral is this afternoon.
Helen had been a teacher, a county councillor, and a non-executive director on Eden Valley Primary Care Trust,
David Blacklock, the CEO of Healthwatch Cumbria said in a statement on the Healthwatch website:
‘Helen was a passionate force for good, she dedicated her whole life to helping others, to tackling disadvantage and to supporting people to live better lives. Helen believed in fairness, equality and human rights. On a personal note, Helen and I became very good friends over the years, often enjoying a good glass of wine and a laugh together.’
Rest in Peace.
