Cait Allen
Chief Executive

“I joined Wessex Cancer Trust as CEO in 2015. Prior to that, I was chief executive of a national non-profit organisation, had extensive NHS experience as well as a background in community engagement. I chose Wessex Cancer Trust as I feel passionately about delivering local services in community hubs where people can gather, support each other and work together to bring about positive change.”

 
Sofie Bennett
Head of Development

“I joined Wessex Cancer Trust in March 2016 as Head of Development. I am responsible for raising income to support and deliver our free services. This comes from legacies, grants from trusts and foundations, company sponsorship, events and the support of the local community who do so much to support their local centre.
Since joining Wessex Cancer Trust I have met many truly inspirational people and I have been humbled by the determination and strength that our service users show on a daily basis. It is my absolute privilege to raise funds for such an amazing cause!”
