Cherish Founder Annette Evans (née Hunter) Passed Away

Itwas with great sadness that the board, staff and clients of One Family learnt of the death of Cherish/One Family founder Annette Evans (née Hunter) who passed away after a long illness.

Annette was instrumental in helping to build the organisation in the early days and helped the founders to buy the building in Pembroke Street using her numerous contacts and charm. She will be missed by us all.

Cherish All the Children is the remarkable story of One Family’s founders; those brave women who refused to give up their children for adoption nearly 50 years ago. They formed Cherish, changed the law on illegitimacy and fought to get a single parent’s allowance.

Cherish was set up by single parents, for single parents and this documentary features interviews with our core founders, including Annette Hunter Evans, who share their personal experiences and the challenges of being pregnant and single in Ireland five decades ago.

The documentary was first broadcast on Today FM on Sunday 29 December 2013 at 9am.
