Meet the team


Fernando Pinho

Before founding Please Take Me There, Fernando worked in arts management. Combining his love of flying and his experience of seeing his brother go through cancer, he was inspired to start an organisation which would make the process of hospital treatment easier. He is originally from Portugal. Fernando doesn’t have much free time, but when he does, he enjoys composing music and spending time with his wife and daughter.

Natalie Taylor-Scotcher

Natalie is the face and voice of what we do. She went through cancer herself shortly after the birth of her son, which was a big part of the reason that she decided to join the team. She has trained as an actor and has a degree in psychology. Natalie loves Harry Potter, enjoys a tasting menu in a good restaurant, and spending time with her son.

She specialises in marketing and promotion - creating, implementing and managing our events, and making sure that everything runs according to plan. Alex is a creative writer, and loves to travel and get on the dance floor.


Anna Maria Whelan

Anna is the newest addition to the team, with a background in languages and politics, she loves to communicate and engage with our community.
