Sandy Gilbert

Trustee

I became more closely involved with KASC several years ago when I helped to lead the Dartmoor long distance walk challenge. I love to organise fundraising events, so what more deserving cause than to use my energies to help KASC reach out to raise more money to help more people, and have some fun too!

Mike Knowles

Trustee and Treasurer

I am now retired following a lifetime in the insurance industry and and resided in Hope Cove from 2000 before moving to Stokenham in 2022. I have always been interested in being involved with the local community and was therefore particularly pleased and excited to have the opportunity to become part KASC as both Treasurer and Trustee, in view of the excellent work it carries out in supporting local people.

My motive is to support and help grow a truly local charity in my newly adopted home of Kingsbridge. Kingsbridge and Saltstone Caring is run by local people with local volunteers helping lonely and vulnerable people living in the area. I was thrilled to be asked to be involved.

I grew up in Exeter before leaving for university and a career in the financial services industry in London. I had a base in Devon for 20 years and have now retired to Salcombe. I worked in the venture capital industry for 30 years and, before retiring, led the establishment and development of a not-for-profit organisation, Level 20, to promote greater gender diversity in the private equity industry. I was also a trustee of an educational charity in London.

Trustee

My career has been in senior management in home improvement and home furnishing companies.   I have now retired and relocated to near Kingsbridge.

Originally from Manchester then Cheshire my family have spent 30 years coming on holiday down here.   My daughter relocated to Malborough some 10 years ago.   We rented here for 18 months in order to discover more about the locale and the people and this is how I met KASC.   Their strong ethos on being a real part of the local social fabric and structure was compelling.  So I offered my skills and experience and here we are.

Dr Jane Smith

Dr Jane Smith

Trustee

I have recently retired after working as a GP in Coventry for over 30 years. After many happy years of family holidays in the area, my husband and I recently moved to Salcombe. After working in a busy city practice we are enjoying being part of a more rural community who have made us very welcome . In addition to looking after patients, General practice has also given me management skills running a small business within an ever changing NHS. I hope the skills I have acquired during my professional career will enable me to support the other trustees and the wider KASC team

Rachel Kerecsenyi

Charity Officer

I have lived with my husband in the South Hams for over 30 years and brought up our two teenage children here.  During this time I’ve held a variety of job roles from becoming qualified as an Operating Department Practitioner within the NHS and more recently I have worked for local charity organisations, where I have had the opportunity to contribute in assisting people in the local community.  I am passionate about helping people and feel very lucky to be working for KASC doing a job where I can meet such a diverse range of people and help to assist in improving their quality of life. When I am not working I love walking through the beautiful South Hams countryside with my third and most favourite child Harvey my Cockapoo!
