Hayley joined the fundraising team in 2021 after finishing her Master’s Degree in Sports Science. After 6 years of leading fundraising projects with young people, Hayley decided to follow the fundraising profession full time and was inspired by Cavendish’s work. What Hayley most enjoys about working at Cavendish is seeing the positive impact that her role has on providing essential services for individuals and families living with cancer.
In her spare time Hayley enjoys entertaining family and friends at home, especially with a BBQ outside, or watching a good film in the evenings. She enjoys staying active by playing ice hockey and is a regular at her local gym.
Hannah joined Cavendish in 2021 after graduating from Sheffield Hallam with a degree in Events Management with Experiential Marketing. Hannah began working on events in the charity sector during her time at University and, following a cancer diagnosis, knew that this was the sector she wanted to go in to post degree.
During her chemotherapy (which was successful!), Hannah was introduced to Cavendish and the work that they do and now prides herself on the fact that she is able to help continue the support for others in similar situations.
In her spare time, Hannah can be found either at a gig, immersed in an interior design project or enjoying some good food at the pub with her family and dog, Ralph.
Corporate Wellbeing Manager
Chloe joined Cavendish in 2021 to drive the wellbeing services we offer to local businesses. Chloe was previously responsible for global customer service at a local engineering company, choosing to leave after 15 years to focus on values closer to her heart. Chloe is now a qualified coach and trainer, and hugely enjoys her role promoting positive wellbeing which supports our therapy services.
In her free time Chloe enjoys exploring with her rescue dog Bella, trying out local eateries / coffee shops, and crocheting or reading with a nice cup of tea.

Trust Fundraising Manager
Clare joined Cavendish in August 2017 to support trust and grant fundraising, but in her time she has also taken on a range of other projects such as producing our Annual Report and helping to plan the Celebration Ball, which took place in March 2019.
Since graduating from Leeds University with a degree in Media and Management, Clare has worked with a number of South Yorkshire charities for over ten years, developing skills and experience in events and communications, as well as trusts and grants. She has managed and supported a wide range of events including everything from balls to conferences to sponsored horse rides. When she’s not working Clare is a keen crafter attempting to make presents for her friends from quilts to baby mobiles and is never happier (read: frustrated from getting stabbed by pins!) than when she has a project on the go.
Laura joined Cavendish in 2023 to drive our marketing efforts, focusing on increasing brand awareness of Cavendish Cancer Care and our therapeutic services. Since graduating with a degree in Public Relations, Laura spent many years working in communications in the Yorkshire region including roles in Local Government, children’s social care, the Civil Service and for a national heritage charity.
More recently Laura has taken several years out of her career to bring up her two boys and pursue some freelance copywriting work. In her spare time (ha!) Laura enjoys yoga, reading, travel and visiting museums and art galleries. She is easily distracted by cats, cups of tea and biscuits.
