Rachel first became aware of 2 Wish Upon A Star in 2013 and has volunteered a few times over the years.
Rach followed Rhian and 2 Wish Upon A Star, watching in admiration as the tragic loss of George and Paul gave life to an amazing organisation, offering much needed support to suddenly bereaved families. She worked in Finance departments in the IT industry for over twenty years before taking a career break to have her children.
Rachel decided it was time for a career change and she wanted to make a difference and help people. When the role of Office Assistant was advertised at 2 Wish, she knew it was the perfect job.
Many people have asked Rachel if it’s hard working for a bereavement charity and Rach says ‘sometimes, as we have heart breaking referrals. However, our focus is on doing all we can to support families in their darkest hours. The sense that we really are making a difference keeps us going'.
