I’m the CEO of Cancer Research Wales and count it as a great honour to be heading up this extraordinary charity and working alongside such a very talented and dedicated group of researchers, volunteers, funders and staff.
I’ve worked for over thirty years in the voluntary sector working for charities as diverse as Macmillan Cancer Support, Save the Children and the RNLI through to a local hospice and national health charities, mainly heading up fundraising and communication teams and operating as part of the senior management team. My last role involved leading a team developing training packages for countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.
I have just moved to Wales and am looking forward to the future opportunities for Cancer Research Wales. I, alongside the team here, believe that research can save lives and we are all dedicated and focused to ensure that we are funding solutions which will address the cancer issues which affect the people of Wales.
