The Team


Jackie Peel 

Project Manager

Jackie is the Project Manager and co-founder of The Exodus Project. She manages the day to day running of activities. Jackie also tries to visit all the clubs to get to know the children for when they come to stop at Jenny's Field.
Being Project Manager, Jackie has to be a 'Jack Of All Trades' and on many a weekend she has to cook for over 30 hungry children and leaders, do the gardening, cleans the building, as well as day-to-day managing the charity and leading in clubs.
For relaxation, Jackie loves country walks, gardening, reading, watching detective films (especially Agatha Christie), likes many sports and has just recently started running (still at the run a bit, walk a bit stage!).

Martin Sawdon

Development Manager

Martin is our Development Manager and Co-Founder of the Exodus Project. As well as helping run the clubs in all the venues and leading activity weekends, it's Martin's job to get funding in to make it all possible….hence the worry lines!
Martin is keen on pretty much all sports and can still compete with the young 'uns', even though he's just passed his half century! Don't argue with him about evidence for the existence of God because he'll win….there's a challenge!
Martin is a big fan of the Scottish band The Proclaimers, Kate Rusby and Stephen Fry. He plays guitar (badly), piano (even worse) and runs not very long distances these days, to keep fit. He also takes Walter (the camp dog) on long walks.
