Philanthropy is my passion: I connect individuals and foundations who can make transformational donations to the causes and projects that inspire them.
As Executive Director of Magic Bus UK, I raise funds for the charity’s work supporting young people out of extreme poverty across India.
I have over ten years’ experience of major gifts fundraising and leading successful teams in the non-profit sector.
I began my career at Gonville and Caius College (University of Cambridge), where I ran the most successful Oxbridge college telephone campaign to date, before moving into managing major gifts programmes at at Prostate Cancer UK, Centrepoint and London Business School. At London’s Air Ambulance Charity, I established and grew the Philanthropy and Special Events function, founding the Innovation Circle, fundraising six figure gifts to the Up Against Time Appeal, and working with the Royal Patron, HRH the (then) Duke Of Cambridge, on a £1 million Gala.
From 2020 – 2023 I was Trustee of Magic Me Arts, an inter-generational arts charity addressing social isolation, where I also enjoyed combining my love of cocktails and party-hosting as a volunteer Cocktails in Care Homes manager!
