Jen Kelly, Chief Executive Officer
The GKCCT was founded in memory of my daughter Grace who passed away in 2014. Grace was a loving, caring little girl who above all wanted to help and look after other children. Her legacy, the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust was set up to do just that, to help other children as I know this is exactly what she would have wanted.
I am so proud of all Grace has achieved and am grateful to everyone that has helped to make this possible. As both a bereaved parent and a General Practitioner, I am in the unusual position of being able to experience the problems of childhood cancer both from the viewpoint as a clinician but also as a parent. I hope that in time, our work will make a big difference to children fighting cancer.
Emma Williams, Charity Operations & Fundraising Manager
I joined the GKCCT in March 2020, having over 17 years experience of working within the third sector in a variety of roles including event and project management, fundraising, communications and administration.
I am proud to be part of such an amazing, caring team here at the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust. Working towards the legacy that Grace has left behind, supporting oncology families at the hardest of times and working hard in the fight against childhood cancer.
Sarah Tarry, Family Support Worker
I joined the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust in September 2021 having worked for 19 years within the NHS, 17 of which were with the 0 - 19 Startingwell Partnership. Alot of my work was around supporting families and so I have been able to transfer some really useful skills to my new position.
I feel proud and delighted to be part of such a fabulous team. I hope to be able to make a difference to our oncology children and their families, by offering both emotional and practical support. Most important, I hope to help the legacy that Grace has left behind to continue to grow through the good work that the Charity is doing.
Coralie Hudson, Community and Corporate Fundraiser
I joined the fabulous team GKCCT in April this year. Having worked for several national and local charities, I am delighted to bring my skills and experience and be part of changing the lives of families affected by childhood cancer.
Joining the charity in our sixth year is such an exciting time. With so many local businesses and those across our community supporting us already, I am really looking forward to expanding our reach across our counties and beyond. We also have an exciting calendar of fundraising events planned which I am already enjoying getting stuck into!
It is so humbling to be part of an organisation which does so much good in honour and memory of such an amazing little girl. Every day I feel so proud to be part of the team.
Sophie Myers, Charity Co-ordinator
I joined the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust in April 2022 with almost a decade of experience in the events industry, working in various roles: ranging from sales, staffing management, administration and operations.
I have always had a passion volunteering in my spare time for different charities, so I am therefore very proud to begin my career within the third sector.
I absolutely love being part of such a compassionate, supportive team here at GKCCT, I am honoured to be working towards the legacy that Grace began and I look forward to doing everything I can to continue GKCCT’s success.
