Cheryl Bannatyne

Cheryl is a copywriter for Tearfund where she gets to share the great stories of lives being transformed around the world.

She's qualified as a microbiologist but always had a passion for the written word, so hung up her lab coat and picked up the pen. After a few years managing the editorial office of the British Journal of Cancer she sailed the world – well, a little bit of it – with Operation Mobilisation before working on a business magazine for five years. She's delighted to be playing with words again after a seven-year foray into the world of church administration.
