Carers Trust are delighted to announce that Carers Trust Vice President and long standing supporter Hilary Devey has been awarded a CBE (Commander of the British Empire) in The Queen’s Birthday Honours, for her work in logistics and with charities.
 
Hilary has been a fantastic supporter of unpaid carers for many years. This support has made a real difference to Carers Trust and more importantly to the carers we support. 
 
Hilary first became involved with Carers Trust in 2007, and through her company Pall-Ex and her own personal fundraising activities has raised in excess of £200,000 in support of carers.
 
Of equal importance has been the way Hilary has used her public profile to promote carers issues. She uses every possible opportunity to talk about the needs of carers and of the positive difference that support from charities such as Carers Trust can make to their lives and those they care for.
 
Hilary continues to be a wonderful spokesperson for our cause and has fronted several media campaigns including ‘Give Carers a Break’ and ‘Recognising Older Carers’.
 
Of the award, Thea Stein, Chief Executive of Carers Trust, said: “I was delighted to hear of Hilary’s award in The Queen’s Birthday Honours and am so pleased that the work she does for charities such as Carers Trust has been acknowledged. It is evident she is a woman of great drive and compassion and we are so grateful that she has decided to use those strengths in support of carers. Congratulations Hilary!”
