My role is to lead on all areas of fundraising and operations. I manage our small but enthusiastic team of staff, reporting to Trustees on our progress in reaching our vision of making life better for children with cancer. I love working for a small but impactful charity where I can see the difference we make every day. I'm here because I believe passionately in what we do.
My key responsibilities are to lead on all events, including the Children’s Cancer Run. I am also developing and delivering a new, exciting programme of fundraising events that engage with our supporters and key stakeholders. I feel very lucky to be able to focus my expertise in events management on such a vital cause.
I provide and manage administrative, database and accounting services. I enjoy the satisfaction of leaving work at the end of the day knowing that I am a part of a team supporting important work being undertaken in research and helping to improve the lives of children with cancer.
I have been on secondment to the charity for 18 months. The main skills I have brought to the team are around marketing, communications and managing digital platforms. I also love to get stuck in to the everyday practical jobs that are required when you have a small but absolutely amazing team, and helping anyone that gets in touch with us to give them the best experience possible.
