Trustee


I was asked to become a Trustee in 2009 and was honored to accept. The unique service we offer compliments the bigger charities involved with helping cancer sufferers and I am always humbled by the response of participants who have attended our breaks. Our facilitators are experts in their field and their work continues to strengthen my resolve to consolidate our charity. As ‘the accounts person’ I supply the years’ figures to our wonderful accountant Mel Allday and I help out with fundraising events whenever possible.

Trustee


I was delighted to become a trustee of Cancer Lifeline South West in March 2017. Many members of my family have been affected by cancer and it is an honour to work with this charity and do my bit to make a difference to people who have faced cancer. My background is in commercial and corporate law and I was the Company Secretary for a large charity for seven years. I hope that my governance experience will help CLSW to continue to grow and develop so we can help more people over the coming years. I heard about CLSW when Lisa Lea Weston told me how grateful she was for the support she had received from them and persuaded me to run a race to raise much needed funds. As an absolute beginning it was a challenge but an enjoyable one. I have since decided that I would prefer to help administratively instead of running!

Trustee


I have been a trustee since late 2007 having attended a ‘Time to Retune’ break with my husband in the summer of 2006. I experienced first-hand what an amazing opportunity the break provides to help people move forward positively with their lives and I wanted to be part of a team creating that opportunity for others in the future. I am lucky enough to co-ordinate the fundraising group – the commitment and creativity of the members is amazing! I also produce an anonymous summary of feedback from each break – you only have to look at that to get the motivation to carry on and to be grateful for everything that everyone involved in the charity does!

With a family history of cancer, he considers that he has some understanding of the challenges and needs of those suffering from the illness and the associated effects on their relatives. Clive has over 40 years’ business experience as an executive and non-executive director of both private and public listed companies, and he is keen to see the charity continue to operate effectively and efficiently in what are tough financial times.

Facilitator


I have been involved with running the groups for Cancer Lifeline South West since 2006. I have found it a privilege to repeatedly witness the changes that take place within members of the group as a result of their sharing of common experiences on Lifeline breaks. I am a registered Psychotherapist and worked in the NHS in that role for 20 years, I now just have a small private practice. I also work on a smallholding, which keeps me busy and I have a grown-up family.

Fundraisers


We are very grateful to all our fundraisers with special mention to Scrambled Womens Legs Running Club. Also special thanks to Darrell Fulford & Helen Fulford who have raised so much over the years.
