I became Talking Money’s Fundraising Manager in the Spring and as part of my role I manage our grant applications and relationships with funders. My current focus is on building unrestricted income, in line with Talking Money’s new fundraising strategy, and looking after Talking Money’s website and communications. I have worked in fundraising for a variety of charities over the last 7 years, including the NSPCC and Samaritans. My last role was Head of Events and Community Fundraising at The Big Issue Foundation and I worked in their corporate fundraising team before this. I love to engage people through events and took part in the South West Legal Walk with colleagues and trustees earlier this year. I am currently planning for our 30th birthday year celebrations, including a celebration event and special fundraising campaign.
