Board of Trustees

Our trustees are responsible for ensuring that Halton Haven Hospice is well-governed and has a strategic vision. They play important roles as ambassadors and advocates for the Hospice.

Emma Guy

Chair of the Board of Trustees

I am married to Jonathan, and we have three children. I am a Director of a digital marketing agency based in Sutton Weaver, Runcorn and I run my own acupuncture clinic in Northwich. 

I have previously been a Parish councillor for almost ten years, and a Special Constable for Cheshire Constabulary. Many of my shifts were walking the beat in Runcorn or Widnes so I know the area well. In 2016 I was diagnosed with breast cancer whilst working with another local hospice. I know at first hand the incredible work hospice staff do, so when I was asked to join and support the Hospice as a Trustee I couldn’t say no. 

Chris Parlane

Chair of the Finance Sub-Committee

I became involved with the Hospice after the death of my wife Angela in Halton Haven in 2004. Although she was initially frightened of going to a Hospice, after a couple of days she said, “I am in the best place”. The care and compassion that she and the family received during those final few days still moves me greatly. I consider it a privilege to have had the opportunity to support this very fine establishment as do all my family.

Other interests include being a member of Widnes Rotary Club, a Liveryman in the City of London and a magistrate for 39 years, retiring under the age rule at 70.

I sit on the Board as a recently retired representative of the General Practitioners in the Halton area-whose patients are the main users of the services available at Halton Haven. I was a GP at the Peelhouse Plaza Practice in Widnes, where I worked from 1987 to 2016.

My aim as a Board member is to support the Hospice and its staff in providing the range of vital Palliative Care services available at Halton Haven.

I am married with a grown-up daughter and live in Chester. My leisure interests include golf and hill walking. .

Richard Bamber


I am married to Dawn and have three children.

The ethos of our business has always been to support whenever possible the local community as we believe small businesses can make differences within the communities that they trade.  Our community engagement has been formally recognised with a number of awards and accolades.

My parents and family have been supporters of Halton Haven since the very early days and like many we have seen first-hand the amazing support ‘The haven ‘give to the community therefore I was delighted to be asked to be a trustee.

Julie Hunt


I retired in 2013 after working for more than 40 years in the caring profession, including managing care homes, inspection, complaints investigation and adult safeguarding. I worked in Halton, Warrington, Cheshire and Wirral.

I was a trustee of the hospice from 2016-21, at which point I resigned due to commitments at home, caring for my partner who has Alzheimer’s.  I have recently been reappointed and feel privileged to be part of this valued service once again. 

I live in Frodsham. My interests include gardening, walking, reading and music.
