Trustee, The Yard Theatre (December 2017 - present)
The Yard is a theatre and music venue in a converted warehouse in Hackney Wick. Since opening in 2011 it has become a necessity in theatre, upending traditions to fill the gap between performance and writing.
My role on the Board is acting as the Yard Theatre’s fundraising trustee.
Vice Chair, Institute of Fundraising Cultural Sector Network (April 2015 - present)
The IoF’s Cultural Sector Network extends the influence, reach and standing of Cultural Sector fundraising and represents all those involved in charitable fundraising for the sector.
The group has secured Arts Council England funding to roll out its initiatives across the UK including mentoring for early career cultural fundraisers, a programme of live fundraising events and bursaries for Institute of Fundraising courses and conferences.
In my volunteer role as Vice Chair I am part of a working group that oversees this Arts Council funded programme alongside representatives from the Institute of Fundraising’s Head Office and Young Arts Fundraisers.

Capital Campaign Project Committee Member, Bush Theatre (September 2013 - April 2016)
