I’m currently employed as Director of Fundraising for Henshaws, a charity which provides support, advice and training to anyone affected by sight loss and other disabilities across the north of England. I manage a team of 8 with 4 direct line reports and an income budget of £1 million. I’m responsible for all fundraising activity at Henshaws and the strategic plan and implementation to continue developing and growing fundraising in all income streams.
I have been working in the sector for over 10 years and my previous experience has mainly been in sporting, community and corporate fundraising both for local and national charities. I have also been a trustee for a small charity looking to set up a city farm.
