John Power

John Power

John Power, born in York and moved to Sheffield as an infant, remains a steadfast, proud Yorkshire man. He now resides in a small village in North Derbyshire, on a farm with his wife, Lindsay of 20 years, and their three children. They keep a few animals on what John describes as a “hobby farm”, which includes keeping cows, geese, chickens and two dogs.

John has worked for the family business for over 32 years, the past 10 of which he has held the position of Managing Director and Chairman of Panache Lingerie.

John’s whole life has been connected with the Lingerie industry, as his father, Anthony Power, had worked for Playtex from 1962 – 1982. Anthony took the initiative to set up Panache Lingerie in 1982 and it was a natural progression for John to join the family business, which still remains wholly owned by the Power family today. The board consists of John and his elder sisters and younger brother. Today, Panache trades in 53 countries worldwide with offices in Sheffield, New York and China.

John is quoted:

“After a lifetime and livelihood that the lingerie industry has provided my family, I’m delighted and honoured to be associated with The Bust Trust in my capacity of Chair. We have a great team of proven individuals who have taken on the role of Trustees and who are dedicated to ensure that we work efficiently to make certain that The Bust Trust’s funds are diligently distributed to charitable organisations both small and large. It is of utmost importance to us that these charitable organisations seek to reach women of all ages and promote breast health and wellbeing.”

Heidi Probst

Heidi Probst

Professor Heidi Probst is not only an academic, but a wife and a mother based in the beautiful rolling hills Yorkshire with a great passion for healthcare and teaching.

Heidi’s working life has been healthcare centric and for over 30 years she has studied relentlessly, constantly improving upon her vast knowledge of radiotherapy and oncology. First qualifying as a Therapeutic Radiographer at the Royal London Hospital in 1987, Heidi’s passion for research developed and she later would be awarded a research training fellowship from the Department of Health to complete her PhD on a full-time basis; graduating with a PhD in 2002. For over 14 years she worked for the NHS primarily for Leeds Teaching Hospitals, leading the pre-treatment radiotherapy simulation service, gaining a first-hand account of helping women with breast cancer.

Heidi followed her passion for teaching and joined Sheffield Hallam University as a full time senior lecturer in 2001 and was appointed to Reader in Radiotherapy in 2013, later becoming Professor of Radiotherapy and Oncology in 2015.

It is clear to see that finding new ways to make radiotherapy a more bearable treatment for patients going through an already difficult time is something Heidi feels passionate about and is a worthy cause for investigation.

AWARDS
2011 – Fellowship of the College of Radiographers
2014 – Inspirational Teachers Award from Sheffield Hallam University

When asked about the Bust Trust and how she feels about it, Heidi said:

"I couldn’t be more pleased that charitable organisations which promote breast health will receive the support they need from the Bust Trust. It is something I have a zest and a passion for, and I can only hope that my involvement will bring a different facet to the trust."
