Barry Rinaldi, Chairman 

 “I first became involved with the Trust in 2010 when my wife Sara was diagnosed with breast cancer. I then spent a number of years volunteering and stood as Fundraising Group Chair from 2012 to 2015.

“After standing down from this position I very much wanted to stay involved with the charity and became a Trustee in March 2016.”

 

 

Janice Gabriel
“I have been a nurse for 40 years, and have spent 35 of them in various aspects of cancer care including clinical, research, teaching and management. I first became involved with the Trust when I was a nurse specialist in Portsmouth, where Wessex Cancer Trust helped to support the development of their chemotherapy unit, and went on to become a Trustee in 2013.”

 

 

Janet Warwick

“I previously worked as a pharmacist at both Winchester and Andover hospitals, and more recently as a Councillor for Winchester City Council.

“Being a City Councillor means getting involved with and being passionate for your local community, and after discovering the Trust’s Winchester Cancer Support Centre, in April 2016 I became a Trustee to help to support a fantastic local charity!”
