New trustee Karthik Ramulu

CWB are pleased to welcome Karthik to the trustee board, here is a short interview on why he decided to join us and plans for the future.

How and when did you find out about CWB?
I hadn’t come across CWB prior to seeing the advert for new Trustees. Having dug a bit deeper in to the charity I clearly saw the positive impact CWB was having as well as an opportunity to make a real difference. Having spoken to members of the team I just knew I had to get involved! A few months in and I am really excited about what the future holds for CWB.

Why is it so important to integrate health messaging with sport?
Sport is the perfect vehicle to provide social change messaging as it breaks down barriers and allows the messages to be delivered in a relaxed, fun and engaging manner.

Where would you most like to visit on a CWB project?
I am yet to go on a CWB project so I would be delighted to go on any project to see the work first-hand!

How do you see CWB developing in the next 5 years?
I think the first priority is to ensure a sustainable return to the successes pre-Covid and have volunteers visiting projects in those numbers. There are still multiple challenges to overcome to ensure this is achieved. After that there are multiple opportunities for CWB to have a growing influence in new locations across the globe.

What’s your favourite cricketing moment?
My first visit to Headingley Stadium was for an ODI between India and England. We had front row seats and I even made it on TV when a boundary was hit in our direction. There is something about your first match you won’t forget!

What do you do when you're not CWB-ing?
I like to keep active and regularly rock climb and play golf. Now that restrictions are easing I will be venturing out to visit some good pubs and restaurants with friends – hopefully in the sun!
