About me

Hi I’m Sarah and I am based in Basingstoke, but also spend a lot of time at our Make-A-Wish Hub in Reading. 

I absolutely love my job. I have worked at Make-A-Wish since 2010 and no two days are the same. One day I can be at a school doing a talk to 5 year olds, and the next day I can be at a Company Staff meeting talking about the wishes we grant.

My role at Make-A-Wish

As Senior Community Engagement Manager I work with volunteers, community groups and businesses to maximise fundraising and awareness in the South of England.

I also lead the amazing Regional Fundraising team alongside my colleague, Shaun Campbell.

"The children and families that we grant wishes to inspire me every day. I feel very proud to be able to enable communities to help make these wishes come true."
