New PCC members and wardens
I have lived in Fulham all my life and am reliably informed that I have been attending All Saints since I was a week old(!). I have been involved in lots of different ways at All Saints over the years, serving, leading intercessions, Zoom quizzes, playing for the cricket team, and more recently you may have seen me livestreaming the 10.30 service. I work in marketing for Fuller's, looking after our pubs' drinks ranges, and enjoy playing and watching sport, including the rollercoaster ride of being a Fulham season ticket holder. I am still involved in my old school's CU (Christian Union) which runs events and residential trips for teenage boys, and hope I can bring that experience, amongst other things, to the PCC.
Tom Quy lives in Fulham with his wife, Sophie Quy and his two young children. Tom has worshipped at All Saints for several years now and is keen to give back to the church and community which has been so welcoming to his family. Tom has been helping as a sidesman for the last year and, alongside Sophie, has helped with the recent Christmas carols. From a business perspective, Tom has worked as insurance broker within the Lloyd’s of London market for the last 14 years, specialising in technology and cyber risks. Tom would very much like the opportunity to volunteer within the PCC, to assist where needed and to continue his work within the All Saints community.
Hello! I'm JoJo. My husband Sam and I moved to Bishops Park just in time for the first lockdown to start and we've been thoroughly enjoying the area ever since. You might have seen us cycling around with our two young children, or perhaps spending Sunday service constantly running out of the aisle trying to halt their dramatic escape attempts. I was previously in advertising but currently very much love being a full-time mother.
I've lived in Fulham since the late 1980s and being coming to All Saints, on and off, since that time. I work in advertising as a copywriter and, as someone in their mid 60s, am looking forward to retiring. I am married to Nicoletta and we have two children. My boy is currently at university and my daughter is at Lady Margarets. You may occasionally see me on the local tennis courts or, more likely, walking a very naughty dog called Lexi around Bishop's Park.
I grew up ‘within the sound of’ All Saints Fulham’s (ASF) bells so it has always been a part of my life, even before I stepped in through its doors. I was brought up a Roman Catholic but have been attending ASF, along with my husband, Ade Lusmore, for the past sixteen years. We got married at ASF in 2008 and I vividly remember the special nuptial mass, music and bells as if it was yesterday. I retired from the NHS in 2018 after serving 34 years as a senior nurse in the specialties of cardiothoracics, tuberculosis and infectious diseases/infection control and health protection.
I am already involved with ASF in many roles: a sidesperson, a welcomer, a church-minder, a happy helper at the ‘Wise Birds’ Christmas lunches and am clerk to the ASF Buildings Expert Advisory Panel. I was also the first aid co-ordinator, a role I held for over seven years, a deputy warden for approximately five years and have previously been a member of the PCC/ Deanery Synod representative.
I would very much welcome the opportunity of serving the congregation once again on the PCC.
Laura Auckland has worshipped at All Saints since she moved to SW London in 2007. Whilst on maternity leave from her role as executive assistant to the Global CEO of a major record company, she helped to run the Thursday morning mother and baby group, which in turn led to a fuller participation in church life as secretary and then chair of the Children and Young People’s Committee and also a member of the Community Fete and Dog Show organising team for ten years. Whilst serving her second rotation on the PCC, the opportunity to serve as churchwarden arose at the beginning of 2019. The pandemic delayed the May 2020 APCM meaning Laura served as a deputy churchwarden until she was elected to the full position at the rescheduled APCM in September 2020. Having gained experience over the last year, Laura is standing for re-election today, where her aim is to support the regrowth of ASF.
Susie and I have lived in Fulham since 1981 and started coming to All Saints with our three children in the mid 1980s. Initially we went to the children's service and more recently we have attended the 8 o'clock service. I now work as a part-time consultant for the firm of solicitors in Holborn where I was formerly a partner. I am also a member of the Independent Monitoring Board at Wandsworth Prison – a position I applied for after reading about it in an All Saints pew sheet. Our daughter was married at All Saints in 2016 and our son Patrick is due to be married there later this year. I would consider it a great privilege if elected to serve as churchwarden.
