Sad news

It is with great sadness that we share news of the untimely death of our most recent new appointment Andrea King. Andrea died following a road traffic accident on the evening of Friday 19 April.

We were thrilled and excited to welcome Andrea to the Comfrey Project team earlier this month when she joined us as Volunteer and Operations Co-ordinator.

I was a trustee and chair at North Tyneside Art Studio during the time when Andrea led the organisation as Director (2005-2018). In addition to her warmth and generosity I also witnessed first hand Andrea’s skill as she led the organisation through consecutive periods of development and growth enabling the charity to reach and support more people. It really was a pleasure to work alongside such a dedicated and talented individual.

Our thoughts are with Andrea’s family at this difficult time.
