Mary joined the team in January 2020 as Head of Philanthropy and works closely with our supporters, Friends and fund holders to help them achieve their giving objectives.
Before moving into the charity sector, Mary worked in Wedding and Special Event planning. It was whilst working with an incredibly special couple that she moved her focus to planning events for worthy causes and joined a small children’s charity in Milton Keynes as their Special Events Fundraiser.
She also has experience in Community and Corporate Philanthropy, having worked with both local and national charities and relishes the opportunity to get to know donors on a personal level. She’s still an active fundraiser herself and is heavily involved with a variety of theatre projects that raise funds for good causes.
In her spare time, she loves going to the theatre and choreographs shows for local dance and theatre groups, occasionally still treading the boards herself.
