Meet Lynne Fernquest, Bath Rugby Foundation's CEO

Lynne became Bath Rugby Foundation’s first CEO in July 2017 with a vision to make the charity the ‘go to’ organisation for vulnerable children and young people in B&NES. 

Before joining the Foundation she was editor-in-chief of Bath News and Media, where she led their online and social media growth as well as supporting the company’s business development.

During her time at Bath News and Media Lynne was connected to the region’s many charities and was perfectly-placed to understand the challenges faced by marginalised young people living in or around such an affluent city. 

“The pandemic and the subsequent economic downturn have had a disproportionate effect on youngsters who have already had a tough start in life. Annually the Foundation works with around 3,000 children and young people, but there are at least 10,000 in our region who need support. We will continue to spread the word and champion their cause."
