Raising awareness, funds and hope

About the Trust

Dianne’s husband, Ian Hindle, was absolutely stunned by the mass outpouring of love and public grief for his wife, that was expressed by thousands of people when she suddenly passed away in early January 2019. Deciding that he wanted to harness that amazing positive energy in order to salvage something good from the carnage that Ovarian Cancer had wrought in their lives, he founded the Dianne Oxberry Trust. Established by the Charities Commission in record time, Ian invited 7 fellow Trustees to come on board, bringing with them a unique combination of skills.
