Patients we've helped


New trustees come on board

We’re delighted to announce the first of a series of new trustee appointments to our board as part of our strategic development and expansion plan.


Bolstering the number of film industry representatives on the board will be industry leaders, Kevin Styles, Managing Director of Vue Entertainment for UK and Ireland, and Lawrence Atkinson, CEO of The DDA Group. Bringing a wealth of experience in the film industry, the pair will play a critical role in supporting MediCinema’s continued growth strategy, strengthening our reach and impact for patients, their families and carers across the UK.


Our Chairman, the Northstar Solar CEO, Paul Massara, who took over from Sir Ian Cheshire last year, said: 


“As we embark on our growth strategy to double the number of MediCinema sites by 2025 and broaden our national reach, we are bolstering our trustee board with key appointments who will help us deliver against those objectives. Lawrence Atkinson and Kevin Styles will be invaluable additions to the board and we are delighted to welcome them.”


Vue Entertainment Managing Director, UK and Ireland, Kevin Styles said:


“Escaping into new and exciting situations is what going to the movies is all about. For many years I have been proud to support MediCinema as they bring the power of film into hospitals and clinics and give patients and their families the chance to enjoy everything cinema has to offer. It is an honour to join the board, especially at this time of growth.”


The DDA Group CEO, Lawrence Atkinson commented: 


“I have been inspired by MediCinema’s incredible work for many years and having experienced first-hand the powerful role cinema can play for improving the wellbeing of patients through MediCinema, I am honoured to become a trustee during this exciting new phase of development.”



Along with other developments underway at the charity (which we look forward to sharing with you soon), the experience and expertise that the new board members bring will help set the foundations in place to move us into our next exciting phase.
