I lead the high value giving team for Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity with a primary focus on helping companies, philanthropists, and trusts & foundations support projects that advance care for heart and lung patients.

I love my job because I get to meet some incredible people, hear about how the way medicine and care is continuing to evolve to transform people’s lives and support those that want to be able to give and make a difference.

I manage relationships with corporate partners that support our charity through fundraising and volunteering. We’re lucky to have backing from some amazing companies who are passionate about helping the charity to achieve its mission.

My job is hugely rewarding, getting to work with inspirational people from within the charity and across our partnerships. It makes me proud to be part of a cause that makes such a huge difference to the lives of patients and staff.

I’m here to help you support our hospitals by taking part in any event you might find challenging, this could be anything from a full marathon such as the London Marathon, or a half marathon, like Royal Parks or London Landmarks, a skydive, bungee jump or even trekking along the Thames or up Ben Nevis! I’m also here to give fundraising advice and support to anyone who wants to do a challenge event they have organised. Whichever way you'd like to fundraise, I’m here to help.
