We are pleased to introduce our Team:
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. She attends the West Wilts Vineyard Church, Trowbridge.
