About Me

I’m a Mum of two girls - juggling motherhood and family life in Berkshire, with the fundraising career that I love.

Volunteering roles throughout my teenage years gave me a taster of the world of fundraising and, later on, I was thrilled to secure my first fixed role in the sector, at an agency that work with lots of UK charities to help carve out their fundraising plans. After a short career break, having moved to Scandinavia and had my two children, I now enjoy being part of a strong Make-A-Wish team with a collective commitment to granting more wishes, to more critically ill children.

My role at Make-A-Wish

Since joining the Make-A-Wish Regional Fundraising team in January 2019, I’ve been lucky enough to meet some incredible supporters – not to mention work with some inspiring colleagues! The supporters that I meet each and every week are working with us in so many different ways. From personal challenges and amateur boxing events to sponsored haircuts and corporate SAS-style bootcamps; what aligns them all is their doubtless determination to help us raise more funds, to grant more transformational wishes.

I focus on building partnerships with Community Corporates in the South Central part of England. Underpinning our partnerships is a commitment to understanding our partners’ business objectives, ensuring a mutually beneficial relationship. Success is always down to working with a Community Corporate to create a bespoke fundraising plan, made up of ways to raise funds that tie in with their team’s interests.

I’m looking forward to many years ahead of being part of some wacky and wonderful fundraising activity!


"It’s never one size fits all! We want to ensure that our partners feel part of something special - something that reassures them that their time and effort is making a difference. Because it really is."
