About Me

I've been working at Make-A-Wish for 10 years as Regional Fundraising Manager in Northern Ireland.

I live on the east coast near Bangor and I'm responsible for fundraising throughout Northern Ireland.

My role at Make-A-Wish

My role within Make-A-Wish is to generate income to help us grant a child’s One True Wish.

In my role my day can be varied, from visiting a school to presenting our case for support to a potential corporate partner, supporting runners in our Belfast marathon, or speaking to individuals who've chosen to fundraise for us.

This variety is what I enjoy about my job but I also take great pride in knowing that throughout my daily work I'm helping to change the lives of children here in Northern Ireland.

I also work alongside other departments within Make-A-Wish to ensure our message is reaching as many people as possible and also support our many volunteers in fundraising and wish visiting.

"I've had a number of jobs throughout my working career from teaching to working in sales, but the last 10 years with Make-A-Wish has without doubt been my most rewarding."
