We are extremely lucky to have a team of talented volunteers who are passionate about Kids on Track. They work for free to ensure that every camp is an amazing experience for the children.
The founder of the charity and works at the Andover Education Centre. This is a school for those children who for behavioural or emotional reasons are unable to cope with the demands of mainstream school. It was while working with some of these children that Kiki realised how desperate the holidays can be for those families that have limited resources. She saw an opportunity to use the fantastic facilities of local independent school Farleigh to enrich the holidays of these children.
A Governor at a number of local Andover primary and secondary schools, she is passionate about making a positive difference to the local community. Her work with local schools has enabled her to see the difficulties that holidays can bring and the importance of children continuing to develop and learn throughout the year. She brings a detailed understanding of the legislative and procedural framework required when dealing with children and this is essential for keeping the children safe at the camp.
On the board of Governors at Farleigh School, she worked for Barclays Bank PLC for 18 years and was Chief Operating Officer for the Multinational Corporate Group. As treasurer of the charity Bettina is able to bring a wealth of financial experience to the group both within the corporate and charity sector.
