My Job
I manage our Marketing and Fundraising activity with the core objective of sharing the great work our charity does to build more support.  Our website, social and traditional media, key events and fundraising activity all help do this and I am keen to build our base of supporters among individuals, social groups, fundraisers and businesses. 
Personal Profile

I've been in this role since 2013, prior to that I worked at Aviva in Norwich where I did a range of Marketing jobs over more than 20 years. My last role there was to manage Aviva's sponsorship of Norwich City and through that I first became aware of The Benjamin Foundation. In the autumn of 2008 Aviva offered to put a local charity on the Norwich City players' shirts for one match and this honour went to The Benjamin Foundation by winning the public vote. I stayed in touch with our founder and CEO at the time Richard Draper from that point on and did some voluntary work each year. I then became a Trustee of the charity in early 2012 a position I had to give up when I started my current role.

I'm married and have a son and we live in Norwich. I love cricket, photography, real ale and Indian food and I'm a Norwich City season ticket holder.
