What you do at COT?
Fundraiser
What is your favourite song?
Not an easy question to answer!….but I love "Fly Me To The Moon" sung by Tony Bennett. For sentimental reasons – it was played the night I got married.
What is your favourite food?
Goats' cheese salad (preferably with a lovely glass of white wine!).
Choose three words to describe yourself
Creative, caring, thoughtful (I asked my husband to give me some options - these are the printable ones!).
Describe what you might do in an average day at COT
An average day at COT? Is there such a thing?! That's one thing I love about working for our charity, every day is different! My favourite thing though is seeing a long awaited need being met because we’ve managed to obtain the funding to make it happen.
Have you got a funny tale or an achievement from your time at COT you'd like to share?
I was really pleased when I managed to secure £55K in a short space of time to fund urgent adaptions needed to one of our homes. It was a great project and many grant making trusts agreed and kindly supported us. Fundraising is a job of extremes though, as I recently spent the day dressed as a duck asking the public for donations. People did give - but probably because they also felt sorry for me!
