Shipston Home Nursing welcomes its new Charity Ambassador, actor Kim Hartman, best known for playing Private Helga Geerhart in the BBC classic comedy, ’Allo ‘Allo.
Kim grew up in Stratford upon Avon and was educated at The Kings High School for Girls, Warwick. After a year as a student ASM at The Belgrade Theatre in Coventry, she left to train at the The Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London.
Kim has since appeared in numerous TV plays, comedies, games and chat shows. Her extensive theatre credits have taken her to Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and the Middle East, as well as all over the UK including London’s West End and The Royal Shakespeare Company. She has played Principal Boy or Wicked Queen in more than 30 pantomimes and her voice has been heard in radio plays, audio books and voiceovers.
Kim has a son and daughter and lives in South Warwickshire with her husband, actor, John Nolan. She said: “It’s a pleasure to be asked to be Shipston Home Nursing’s Charity Ambassador – it’s a great cause and the work they do is so worthwhile. This essential local charity cares for patients facing illnesses which no longer respond to curative treatment, offering nursing support and holistic advice to the whole family at a time when they need it most.”
Andrew Revell, Executive Director of Shipston Home Nursing, said: “This is a really important role – as Charity Ambassador Kim will help us to reach new people, inspire new fundraising activity, and thank our supporters for the work they are doing. We are delighted to welcome Kim as part of the team, and thank her for the support. She will be an essential part of our work in raising awareness for the charity.”
