Meet the Team

Our small but dedicated team of staff are:

Karen Winchcombe – Director

Meet the Team: Karen“With a background of working with children and families and as a parent, I have experienced first-hand how much a kind gesture, however large or small, can help a family or individual cope a little better with everyday life. Round Table Children’s Wish matters; the gesture of a ‘handcrafted wish’ leaves not only long lasting memories but also a wider, positive impact for the whole family, in ways which are often immeasurable.”

Cathy White – Wish Coordinator

Meet the Team: Cathy“As the Wish Coordinator at RTCW I have had the honour of granting wishes at the charity for 14 years. No two days are ever the same. It’s always a pleasure to make wishes come true for such incredible children and to be able to work with the families to ensure each wish is handcrafted and unique. It always makes my day to hear how much they enjoy their special wish.”

Stuart King – Finance & Resources

Meet the Team: Stuart“As a Chartered Accountant, my role in the charity is to look after the finances. I have been in this role since joining the charity in 2002 and many years ago I was a member of Bournemouth Round Table. These days, I am an active 41 Club member and hold a Golf Day each year in aid of RTCW. This is a fantastic charity with an excellent team all helping to bring fun and happiness to really poorly children.”

Samantha Read – Fundraising Officer (Runs & Challenges)

Meet the Team: Sam“I have had the great pleasure of working for the charity for over 7 years. My role as Fundraising Officer is to work with our dedicated supporters, getting them involved in various runs and challenges. This involves advising and encouraging them, not only with their own personal sporting goals but of course supporting them to raise funds for this fantastic cause. It is an honour to work with such a friendly team, who have the same aim as me in helping as many children as we can with life-threatening illnesses.”

Cassandra Gagnon – Community Fundraiser

Meet the Team: Cassy“”Its a real privilege to be working for Round table Children’s Wish. My role is to provide support and assistance; whether that is to members of the team or to generally work on marketing, fundraising, wishes or supporting events. I am always overwhelmed by the kindness of the people that fundraise for the charity; it is so inspiring to see people dedicate their time and efforts to support us.”
