George Foster Patron

A member of MiW since it started, George Foster was a teacher and lecturer until he was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2001. He took early retirement and began to do voluntary work for Parkinson's UK, where he reviews applications for Medical Research Grants from the perspective of someone who has the disease. George has a lifelong interest in music, especially Jazz and finds that participation in dance (and singing in a choir) brings relief to his Parkinson's symptoms.

George has been a wheelchair user for over 10 years and represents the disabled people of Hounslow on TfL’s mobility forum and several NHS and Council committees. He is a keen concert- and theatre-goer and can often be seen on the platforms at Turnham Green on his way to and from the West End.

Carol Gray

Carol Gray became a trustee in 2022 and also volunteers regularly at the Saturday class.

Carol recently stopped full time work following a 37-year career in primary school teaching, working with 3–11-year-olds. For the last 15 years she was a headteacher in LBHF. The role of a head in a small primary school is multi-dimensional; from training and public speaking, communicating with many different types of people, to unblocking drains when the site manager is away! Her school was renowned in the borough for its commitment to the arts, and inclusion. She passionately believes in holistic education.

Carol now tutors part time, volunteers at another organisation, rides a horse very badly, and dances whenever she can.

Rachel Hunt

Rachel Hunt became a Trustee of Move Into Wellbeing in January 2020 and brings with her over 20 years of Marketing experience in the financial technology industry, with a particular interest in payments and digital financial inclusion.


Dance has been a passion since childhood, which was rekindled as an adult when she started classes for their mental and physical wellbeing benefits. A keen sailor, if not in London she is most likely on a boat.

Susie Kusnierz

Susie Kusnierz became a trustee of Move Into Wellbeing® in January 2020, bringing with her over 35 years’ experience of teaching and managing in adult and further education and a passion for the benefits that lifelong learning brings to adults.  


Now retired, Susie is fulfilling her childhood dream of learning ballet alongside caring for her elderly mother and enjoying time with the family.

Amanda Zachariah

Amanda Zachariah became a Trustee of Move Into Wellbeing in July 2019. With over 30 years business experience, primarily in retail and fashion, her background is Human Resources and Learning and Development.


In addition to her involvement with MiW, Amanda is a volunteer at a couple of other charities and finds volunteering enormously enjoyable and rewarding. A fan of dance, the theatre, art exhibitions and concerts, she is a regular at many of the capital’s venues.
