I work within Community Fundraising at Dreams Come True. I primarily concentrate on looking after the southern region, anywhere from Birmingham down to Cornwall! The role is varied and no two days are ever the same. I enjoy supporting schools, clubs, groups, organisations and volunteers to help them put on events and fundraise in their local community.
I get a huge sense of pride when a group or individual puts on an event and makes a real success of it. Knowing the money raised goes to individual children, often at a time when they really need something to look forward to, is a real motivator. This then motivates me to encourage our supporters to do even more for the organisation, which then enables us to reach out and help make even more children’s dreams come true!
I have a large family so in my time away from work I can often be found taxi-ing the children to and from various clubs, not to mention doing the piles of washing and ironing that tends to gather. My passion for horses is something I have always had, having worked with these beautiful animals for many years. I plan to come out of retirement (when time allows) to get back out in the countryside and start riding again for leisure.
