Dr Sally Henderson
Sally became a Trustee of Pestalozzi International Village Trust in 2012 and after four years is now a member of council.
As a local resident with an interest in education I have been involved with Pestalozzi for over ten years. My initial connection was through a neighbour, Richard Maidment, who was a Trustee at the time. I took over the running of Pestalozzi’s annual fundraising tennis tournament in 2005 and I have also helped Rosie Clarke, Penny Hamilton and Jane Pennock with our major London fundraising events.
A native of Northern Ireland, Sally was educated at the University of London, taking her PhD in Biochemistry in 1979. Fifteen years of research into kidney diseases at Queen Elizabeth College (now part of King’s College) followed, before she moved to Sussex when her husband was appointed as a consultant rheumatologist at the Conquest Hospital.
Sally has maintained her links with King’s College as chairman of the Queen Elizabeth College Alumni Association. She is also treasurer of the local branch of the National Osteoporosis Society. Her other interests include tennis (she is Chair of the Sedlescombe Lawn Tennis Club), maths coaching and, of course, Pestalozzi.
