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.”

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!”

Following my own cancer journey in 2017 when I was most appreciative of the support & services offered by Wessex Cancer Trust, I am now in a position to ‘give back’ and support the charity in the role of trustee.
