Testimonials

“Emma has been key in the development, launch and roll out of Scripture Union’s Light Party campaign over the last two years. From the germ of an idea to distributing over 7,000 packs in its second year, the campaign has been a great success. Emma has provided competent project management, skilful copywriting and helpful support with strategic planning. She has been crucial in allowing a small team to flex and deliver more and to her credit acts more like part of our team that just as a consultant.” Paul Stockwell, Head of Fundraising, Scripture Union

“Emma has been the fundraiser for Restored for four years. We are a small charity working to end violence against women, which is a challenging area for fundraising. Emma has been brilliant in covering an extremely wide range of fundraising work from developing regular givers, where she designed and launched a programme for us, through events to trust applications. She works on a part-time consultancy basis for us and has been very flexible in responding to our needs. She has drafted supporter communications, guided us through GDPR preparation and helped to develop our contacts database. She is very much part of our team and is very encouraging to work with. I recommend her strongly for any charity looking for a supportive and talented fundraiser.” Peter Grant, Co-founder and Co-director, Restored

“Emma is an enormously dependable and hardworking person with really strong project management skills. The job always gets done! She is very practical in her approach and carries a toolbox of tangible solutions (from a lifetime of experience) to knotty fundraising and communications challenges. She is quick to assimilate and keen to get to the end result. Her versatility makes her an excellent extra pair of hands in any fundraising team.” Ian Walkden, CEO of Habitat for Humanity GB.

“I cannot speak highly enough of Emma on so many fronts. From very first contact, you’ll note she has a passion and unrivalled energy to bring creative, well founded and relevant solutions to her clients’ needs. Much of this is owed to her ability to quickly understanding clients, their operational needs and ethos. When combined with her highly developed communication skills, natural energy, unfaltering commitment and regular jaunts of going well beyond the call of duty, you have a very reliable and powerful partnership to draw alongside you and your organisation. As an added bonus, you’ll have lots of fun along the way as well!” Rob Fielding, MD of Trailblazers, a project of Saltmine Trust
