New chief executive for Bristol cancer charity

Glyn Berwick has been appointed as the new chief executive of Penny Brohn Cancer Care, formerly the Bristol Cancer Help Centre.

He takes up the appointment after serving as chief executive of the Donna Louise Trust, the children’s hospice for Staffordshire and south Cheshire, from its establishment in 2000 to the end of 2007.

Berwick has worked in the voluntary sector for 25 years, including posts at Home-Start UK and the NSPCC.

“The unique Bristol approach to integrated cancer help has an outstanding reputation both at home and abroad,” said Berwick. “I am privileged to serve as the next chief executive and look forward to working with staff and supporters as we build on very secure foundations.”

Matthew Butler, a trustee at the charity, has been serving as interim chief executive since October when Christopher Head, its previous boss, left to take the helm at the Meningitis Research Foundation. Butler will remain as a trustee when Berwick takes his post on 3 March.
