I am a fundraising professional with experience across arts and education. During my time with the London Mozart Players and Fairfield Halls, I organised a major donor dinner at Buckingham Palace, secured funding for a theatre project tackling knife crime and won Heritage Lottery Funding for an archive and oral history project. The life of a fundraiser is nothing if not varied! I joined Trinity School in 2016 and was instrumental in creating a culture of philanthropy in a school with no tradition of asking for support. Education is transformative and as a fundraiser I find that inspiring and motivating.
