Meet the team

We have a fabulous team of Trustees and volunteers whose hard work allows us to make life brighter for families affected by cancer. They are all members of the communities that Lasting Memories support and have been affected by cancer in some capacity, whether through association with family, friends or colleagues.

Luke Capon

Co-Founder and Chair

Luke has worked in healthcare in the NHS for the past ten years, predominantly in exercise and rehabilitation. 

Luke lost both his brother and mum far too young to cancer. In wake of this, he raised over £15,000 for numerous charities cycling from London to Geneva in 2018 and Geneva to Malta in 2019 before co-establishing Lasting Memories Cancer Trust.

His experience has given him both personal and professional sight on the turmoil in illness and this is what drives him to make LMCT a successful charity.

‘After losing my brother and mum to cancer, setting up the charity felt like the perfect ongoing tribute. I wanted it to help ease the burden that diagnosis, treatment and recovery brings to families affected by cancer.’

Joe Capon

Co-Founder and Vice-Chair

Joe works in project management and business and strategy planning and has extensive knowledge of the public health sector.

Left bereft by the passing of his brother, Christian, and mum, Julie, Joe helped set up the charity. He wanted to make a difference to the lives of other people facing cancer.

‘I’m proud to be working with such great people. Together we hope to improve the wellbeing and quality of life for Lasting Memories’ beneficiaries.’

Lucy Capon


Lucy has been a full-time mum since leaving her recruitment role in 2016. This decision wasn’t taken lightly but enabled her to focus on her family’s needs after her husband’s cancer diagnosis.

As a family they were fortunate enough to experience a very happy, and memorable, charitable holiday, the memories of which will last forever. Lucy knows, first-hand, how important it is to create everlasting memories and is honoured to be able to help others achieve their own lasting memories.

Marie Wimlett


Marie is the founder of MW Marketing Solutions, a full-service marketing agency based in Cambridgeshire. She has over three decades’ experience as a marketeer, designing and delivering successful marketing strategies, plans and campaigns for small, medium and FTSE 100 organisations and has achieved Member status at the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

For Lasting Memories, Marie uses her wealth of experience in marketing to help our charity reach fundraising targets and increase brand awareness.

“I started working for Lasting Memories as a volunteer and am now delighted to be on the Board as a Trustee. Lasting Memories is an amazing local charity and the fact that none of us are paid means all profits and every penny from donations go directly to the cause. This is something I feel passionately about. You know that every penny you donate is used to help anyone affected by cancer in the three counties of Beds, Cambs and Herts.”

Jessica Allen


Jessica is a chartered accountant working  for a corporate business.
For lasting memories, Jess uses her experience and skills to support the great working the other board members and volunteers do.
‘Having lost loved ones to cancer, I have first hand experience in how it impacts people’s lives. I am keen to use the skills I have to support such a great cause and help where I can.’

Rebecca Savill


Rebecca is a qualified integrative person-centred counsellor and is a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). She has a passion for specialising in trauma with young people and adults in therapy, is also a counselling tutor and supports a local child bereavement charity. 

Over the past eleven years she’s volunteered her time with various charities and now brings her experience to Lasting Memories, as part of our fundraising and events team and hopes to make a difference by raising vital funds to support families affected by a Cancer diagnosis.

‘Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer, I share in personal and professional experience the impact this may have on day-to-day living and hope to offer support to individuals and their families affected by Cancer in the local community.’

Mike Rice


Mike is a chartered Physiotherapist working within the NHS, specialising in cardio-respiratory conditions.
For Lasting Memories Cancer Trust, since 2021 Mike has used his healthcare background to voluntarily provide medical verification for applications. More recently Mike has agreed to join Luke and Joe in completing a cycling challenge raising vital money for LMCT.
‘I experience those affected by cancer daily in my work and see the physical and emotional challenges this brings. Lasting Memories provides such a personable, vital service to support people like this. Personally my Dad has survived Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma from a diagnosis over 40 years ago, who is a huge advocate for cancer survivorship and support.’
