Our very own ‘Leading Lady'

Your eyes are not playing tricks on you. Our Founder and CEO Helen Allen is one of the stars of the new M&S 'Leading Ladies' campaign.


Anyone who knows PEPAIDS' founder and CEO Helen Allen may have had to look twice when M&S went 'live' with its Autumn/Winter advertising campaign this week. Helen stars alongside a range of women who have tasted success in their field including actress Dame Helen Mirren and ballerina Darcey Bussell.

Helen was chosen because of her achievements in nursing which include being voted "nurse of the year" by the British Journal of Nursing in 2011.

The M&S campaign will be gracing billboards around the UK. Watch this space for more updates.
