It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of our Chair Ruby Marshall MBE on 10th April 2020.

As many of you may know she had a long, successful career in Social Care, and sat on many boards, including ours, as well as being a founding member of NESCHA.

Ruby’s wealth of knowledge and passion for ensuring carers voices are heard will be greatly missed by the board, members of our team and every agency, authority and organisation in Hartlepool and the wider community and country.

Ruby had been with Hartlepool Carers for over 15 years, she helped to steer the board and the charity in the right direction, ensuring we worked for you, our unpaid carers, and ensuring we did the best possible for you. She appointed our current CEO and together they made Carers what it is today.

Our motto is ‘because we care’, I can safely say that she cared… a great deal.

We will miss you greatly Ruby, you will have a place in our hearts forever and always, your compassion and caring nature will live on through the work we do here.

R.I.P Ruby Marshall MBE
