Laura Beavis
Corporate Partnerships and Events Manager

I joined the fundraising team at Wessex Cancer Trust in November 2018, with a focus on working with individuals and companies to build mutually beneficial relationships which raise income and awareness to support local people with cancer. When I’m not working, I also enjoy running and I’m a big fan of charity challenge events, most recently completing a London to Paris bike ride! 



Charlotte von Sicard
Regional Community Manager

"Hi I’m Charlotte! My main focus is on supporters in our community and with managing Sponsored Events participants, for example, the London Marathon. I love my job as I get to meet a range of people, and work on a variety of different events. You’re most likely to find me chatting to a supporter over a coffee."



Emma Graver
Marketing and Communications Manager

"I’m Emma, aka 'The Marketing Lady'. My role is managing anything marketing, from creating press releases and social media content to designing our charity vehicles. Outside of work you’ll probably find me covered in face paint, volunteering with a local youth group."


Catherine Lawry
Events Fundraiser

"It's my job to organise events such as the Walk for Hope and support our amazing
participants to help raise funds for the Trust. Outside of work I love to travel, explore new
places and go for walks along the coast or in the countryside."



Sam Bradley
PR & Communications Executive

"I'm Sam, and it's my job to spread the word about all the fantastic work we do. I've been in PR and Communications for over 20 years, and I feel incredibly lucky to now be working for such a worthwhile cause. When I'm not at work, you'll find me cheering on Southampton FC, running or hanging out at big sporting events or music concerts."


Jess Zubaidi
Trusts and Foundations Fundraiser

"I help to raise funds for Wessex Cancer Trust and its vital services, by making applications to charitable trusts and foundations. I have worked in fundraising for more than ten years and couldn't imagine doing anything else! I feel very fortunate to be part of the WCT team, and am looking forward to making a difference to local people facing cancer. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my young children and helping out at the local pre-school where I am Treasurer."


Lorraine White
Community Engagement Manager - Isle of Wight

"Hi! I'm Lorraine and I'm Community Engagement Manager for the Isle of Wight. You will usually find me dashing from one corner of the Island to the other, meeting supporters in the community, promoting our work within the media and plotting my next crazy fundraiser. I love what I do and I feel so privileged to be able to help make a difference to the thousands of Isle of Wight residents affected by cancer."


Heidi Rehman
Community Engagement Manager - Hampshire

"I feel so privileged to be the Community Engagement Manager for Hampshire, raising funds for Wessex Cancer Trust supporting families who have been affected by the disease. I am passionate about making a difference and find it so rewarding to hear how our Centre’s improve someone’s life following a diagnosis.
