ROSEMARY HUTTON, BCAa
Since starting her singing career at the age of 14, Rose has dedicated her life to the entertainments industry, and as a result has always tried to help out at local and national charities by donating her time, effort and expertise to aid a wide range of charitable fundraising events.
In 1991 Rose began her solo career and it was not long after this point she started combining her musical talents with local charities. Rose has a passion for singing and a passion for helping others who are less fortunate than herself.
Her contribution has benefitted the local community enormously. As a result of her tireless efforts, a great deal of money has been raised for local charitable causes, including Kemp Hospice the local branch of Diabetes UK and County Air Ambulance, in turn this has helped improve the lives of many people.
As well as her work with charities over the last 20 plus years, Rose has been carer for her husband of 25 years who has a long-standing illness.
Rose runs concerts for the Acorns Children’s Hospice in Worcester and for the past 23 years all proceeds from her concerts go to this local hospice, totalling thousands of pounds.
The Salvation Army has benefited from money raised by Rose on numerous occasions to help needy families within the local community. Major Hodgkin, The Salvation Army Kidderminster Corps stated: “Because of Rose’s generosity, we have been able to make people’s lives a little better”.
