Elsie Joins Appeal Team
There are changes afoot in our Appeal team. Our Appeal Manager, Charlotte Bray, has now been here for two years. Her fundraising work during the ‘silent phase’ of our appeal has focused on achieving major contributions from generous individuals, trusts, companies and statutory sources.
On 2nd April we welcomed Elsie Riley as the new Regional Fundraising Manager to focus on raising awareness and funding from local sources, people and groups in the surrounding area.
Elsie will be launching the Public Appeal. The Appeal has been successful so far but we now need the Public’s help to continue to raise the much needed additional funds for the vital upgrading of our accommodation and workshops.
As the Public phase develops so the opportunities to get involved with us will increase. Our new Friends Scheme offers the chance to support us on a regular basis through monthly giving. There are already a number of events planned, at Camphill Blair Drummond and throughout the surrounding area. We are increasing the profile of Camphill Blair Drummond through press and PR as well as through the website. We are so pleased with the offers of support and encouragement which continue to flood in.
Elsie previously worked as a Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, which involved raising money from the local community to help people affected by cancer. Her most memorable experience was going ice skating in a mug costume to promote the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning!
Elsie says “I think Camphill Blair Drummond is a really inspiring place, a very warm and welcoming community, it is so nice to see everyone working together to make it a really positive place. Everyone has been so helpful and welcoming and I really look forward to the Public phase of the Appeal really taking off”
