After working in children’s services for 8 years in various roles, Becky became aware of 2 Wish Upon A Star through fundraising after the death of her best friend’s mum. Becky read the story behind 2 Wish and found it very powerful and moving.
A few months later a job for immediate Family Support Coordinator was posted on social media via the 2 Wish website. It just seemed like fate, and she was looking to expand her skills and knowledge in the area of immediate support, which is where her strength lies.
Becky applied and was thrilled to be offered the post. She has lost friends and family members over the years, some of them suddenly. The one thing that stood out from these experiences was the lack of support for families and individuals who experience the loss of someone suddenly. Working for 2 Wish gives Becky great satisfaction, in the sense that she is able to offer support and comfort to people in need after experiencing bereavement.
