Chair - David
My name is David and I am one of the founder members of the charity. I count myself fortunate that over the past 30 years I have been able to be part of a magnificent team of volunteers whose drive and commitment has enabled the charity to flourish and prosper. Equally I have had the pleasure and privilege of meeting many wonderful children and their families in the course of granting wishes. Many of these families remain in contact with us to this day and continue to support us in the work we are doing with this particularly deserving group pf young people. I look forward to another year of enjoyable and successful fundraising events with a view to granting as many wishes as possible.
Vice Chair - Sara
Sara has been a member of the committee for some 6 years and has held the position of Vice Chair for the last two years.
Secretary - Linda
34 years ago I started, along with just 3 other friends, Kids in Need to help children and their families who were less fortunate, medically speaking, than us. I have assisted in bringing the wishes to fruition for hundreds of children who met celebrities such as Kylie Minogue, Paul Gascoigne, Gary Lineker to name just three. Almost half of my life has been spend doing this and I wouldn't have changed any of it and will continue to do so with it being so rewarding for everybody concerned.

Project Co-Ordinator - Debra
My name is Debra and I have been on the Committee since mid 2010. I have recently taken over as Project Co-Ordinator. Having supported Kids In Need at various events I was very happy to join the committee when asked.
Treasurer - Lol
I was first introduced to Kids in Need by my wife some 18 years ago and have been involved in the many aspects of the charity. Whether it's assisting with wishes or helping put an event together to raise much needed funds, it is all so fulfilling. Kids in Need is like an extended family where we all get together to achieve one common goal. With not one committee member being remunerated for their time and efforts, I am extremely proud to be part of such a wonderful team.
