Say hello to our new fundraising team: Katie Sharpe and Steffi Camm. Katie started as a volunteer with the charity before joining our staff and Steffi has come to us from The Reader Organisation.
Both have experience in fundraising and are now working together to produce a twelve month fundraising strategy for the charity.
Steffi has responsibility for corporate fundraising so will be contacting businesses and individuals to form partnerships, not only to raise money/sponsor events for us, but also to look at how companies and individuals can give time and resources that can be of benefit to the charity. Steffi will also be helping to organise fundraising events being put on by The Brain Charity and her first project is our Charity Ball which takes place on Friday 23rd September 2016.
Katie will be focusing on writing bids to secure funding from foundations and trusts such as The People's Postcode Lottery, The Big Lottery Fund and The Morrisons Foundation. She will also assist with organising The Brain Charity's fundraising events.
