Meet LNWH Charity

We are a small but experienced team here at LNWH Charity and we pride ourselves on looking after our supporters to the best of our abilities.


Wendy George

Head of Charitable Funds


I have worked in the NHS Charity sector for over 25 years specialising in charity accounting and governance. 
I am a keen gym goer and love running, weightlifting and circuit training. I can’t wait to get stuck into some of the new events the Charity is planning!

I worked as a fashion model when I was younger - not quite to the stature of a Supermodel but it was great fun!

Priti Patel

Events & Challenges Manager

I have been managing charitable events since 2010 and my role at LNWH Charity will be to support anyone wishing to host a special event or take on a challenge and raise money for our local hospital. Get in touch if you want to run a marathon, cycle from London to Brighton, climb Kilimanjaro or jump out of a plane!

I have worked and lived in Canada and Australia, where I skydived from 15,000 ft. over Mission Beach!

Panna Pala

Assistant Charity Accountant

I have been working for the NHS for since 2006, joining LNWH Charity in January 2007. Part of my responsibilities is to process donations when they come in to the office and make sure they are allocated correctly. In my spare time I enjoy sewing and yoga.

Following invasive knee surgery a few years ago, I completed a nine mile midnight walk for charity!

Geraldine Dammen

Trusts & Foundations Manager


I have worked in the charity sector since 2011, joining LNWH Charity in June 2018. My role is to secure funds from large and small trusts, and would love to hear from anyone who has any contact with local trusts and foundations.

I once competed in a Formula Student event at Silverstone as part of the 2008 Brunel Masters Racing team!

Sujata Patel

Charity Accounts Assistant


I joined the Charity in 2004 and help process donations and payments, and now also provide admin support to the fundraising team. In my spare time I volunteer for various religious organisations where I help with housekeeping and running food stalls.

I have met both Bruce Forsyth and Sebastian Coe in my local post office in Fulham!

Simon Pitts

Community Manager


My role is to support individuals and organisations who want to fundraise for their local hospital. I’m really keen to hear from anyone who wants to hold their own event or can nominate the Charity for support by their employer, sports club or local school.

In 2010 I wrote and published an illustrated children’s book for a hospice in Essex.
