We are pleased to introduce our Team:

Val Huxley

CEO and Co-founder

After a life changing visit to Romania in 2004 Val left her family and friends back in Kent to support the then fledgling charity. Few would argue that since joining the charity she has been the main stay whilst going through many changes over the years, serving selflessly. Respected by project leaders and loved by hundreds of the children and families within our projects, Val is fired for the charity’s objectives in helping to relieve communities from poverty.

In her sparetime Val loves to visit the cinema and local fringe theatre.  She is also currently in training as a volunteer member for her local canal trust helping crew one of the many boating trips that take place.

Bill Huxley

Trustee and Co-founder

Founder of Business against Poverty, relationship is at the centre of who Bill is. He loves to link businesses and other communities to the international projects we work with. He has an ambition for all those who engage in the fight against injustice and poverty to prosper financially, emotionally and spiritually.

Bill is now retired as a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor after spending over 20 years in practice. He also is a Certified and Accredited Personal Coach and a Member of the Association of Coaching (MAC.)

In his spare time, Bill is also training as a volunteer crew member for the canal trust alongside Val.  He helps his local church by volunteering one day a week in supporting lonely/vulnerable visitors to the cafe.  He keeps fit by attending a gym and running around after his grandson
