I have 11 years charity fundraising and charity retail experience gained in a diverse range of organisations. Starting in 2004 at Save the Children I have since worked for both adult and children's hospices in the south east and also in London fundraising for a child poverty charity.

My background is retail and marketing and this commercial training has held me in good stead to face the challenges of raising vital funds for important causes.

I am thrilled to be leading a fantastic income generation team at Martlets looking after both the trading and fundraising arms and most importantly reaching out into the local community to build partnerships with our supporters.
