Founder

Laura Phillips

I started We Get It because I wanted to make sure no one is alone during or after cancer treatment. Everything you see, hear and attend is created by the We Get It team. They give up their time, energy and passion for free, because we all believe in living your life with or without cancer. We want to show people we get it and grow our cancer community in Bath.

Director of Marketing & Business Development

Lizzie Heffer

With 20 years’ experience in marketing and business development, my expertise in profile raising, brand development, digital development and event management, alongside contacts in the professional services and charity sectors, mean that I’m well placed to work alongside We Get It to increase its profile and enable its growth and success.

Patron & Press officer

Bob Crampton

The role of Patron came along and I snapped it up. It’s a privilege to represent such an amazing group of people who put to one side their own cancer plight to help others with the disease. My other role is Press Officer – helping to get the message out there using all forms of the media.

Social Media & Events Director

Sarah Baker

I’m in remission from cancer and I’ve been with We Get It since its birth in 2018. I run all our social media, so will often be the person who replies to you if you contact us. I’m also responsible for creating our events programme and for shouting about We Get It across the city.

Copywriter & Content Editor

Lara Kavanagh

We Get It provides a wonderful support network for those dealing with cancer, so I'm really happy to be involved. I help get the word out about We Get It with blog posts, flyers, newsletters and web content, including editing the amazing stories that local people have shared with us.

design & brand consultant

Robin Worrall

It’s hard to put into words how proud Rednine are to be able to offer creative support to We Get It. Watching this cancer support group grow so successfully in such a short period of time. Which has to be attributed to the determination of this incredibly generous team driven by the inimitable force that is Laura Phillips – someone I’m so proud to call a dear friend.

Treasurer & Finance Director

Jo Bridger

As a nutritionist, my biggest passion is food, but I also really love numbers. I’m using my accounting skills to keep us on track financially, making sure we can provide as much help as possible to anyone affected by cancer.

Wellbeing & Get-Together Lead

Sue Judge

I lead our Wellbeing programme, including the We Get It meet-ups every Friday at Cafe Walcot. I’m a registered Nutritional Therapist and wellbeing coach and I’m currently training to become a Living Well Facilitator with Penny Brohn. In the future, I hope to start a volunteer buddy system to support those affected by cancer by those that get it, so watch this space.
