Bellyful New Zealand

Charlotte Delahunty

Chief Executive

As Chief Executive, Charlotte is responsible for leading the organisation as it grows its support of families with newborn babies, throughout New Zealand. She is experienced in managing both volunteers and staff and building capacity within a diverse range of industries.

Charlotte has strong business and IT experience, having helped establish an IT start-up company in Wellington, worked for NZ’s leading online giving platform, led large programmes and projects, and worked for one of New Zealand’s top professional services firms. She has also undertaken a diverse range of volunteer roles including organising Fairtrade community festivals and campaigns in London, as a kindergarten Board member, and managing her children's sports teams. She also led an emergency rehabilitation programme in Mozambique with a team of 240 staff.

Charlotte, like many Bellyful volunteers, was grateful to receive meals and support from family and friends, when she had 3 children under 4 years, and is glad now to support other families through Bellyful New Zealand. Charlotte lives in Wellington, with her husband, 3 kids and 6 chickens.

Wendy Thompson

Operations and Quality Manager

Wendy is Bellyful's incredibly hard working volunteer Quality and Operations Manager. Wendy was Bellyful Christchurch Branch Co-ordinator for 5 years, before taking on the current Bellyful role.

Wendy describes the early days with her twins (now adults): "My twins were born in London 13 weeks premature. I had no immediate family in the UK and although our friends did what they could to help, most of them were working full time and could only provide limited support. For the first few months we lived on a combination of take-aways, hospital food and Marks & Spencer's ready meals. This was generally expensive and not nutritious!! When I saw a newspaper article about Bellyful all I could think was I wish it had existed all those years ago in London. So I went along to the first meeting.

Since then I have loved working with such a positive and organised charity. Cookathons are fun and delivering meals to a stressed family is incredibly satisfying.

Wendy lives in Christchurch with her husband, and 3 grown-up children - some of the time. Wendy trained as a pharmacist in New Zealand and worked both here and in England in a variety of hospital and retail positions. In her spare time Wendy enjoys ice skating, mountain biking, running, skiing, boating and overseas adventures with her husband.
