Cherry manages the Health and Wellbeing team who manage a portfolio of projects. The team started with the fit as a fiddle BIG lottery funded project seven years ago and has evolved to include a number of other projects.

Prior to working at Age UK, Cherry worked on projects for a range of not-for–profit organisations and charities.
