Proudest moments:

Philippa has worked with charities and not-for-profit organisations both large and small to advise and support them to develop a clear approach to fundraising. This includes fundraising strategy and development, corporate partnership models, including sponsorship strategies. She has also delivered prospect research for companies, trusts and foundation. Philippa's proudest moments include being part of the team that led the fundraising strategy to launch RNLI Beach Lifeguards on UK beaches. She has recently helped a small, hard-to-fund community organisation called People and Gardens, successfully gain support from trusts and foundations that has developed into significant annual income.

Seven things that make me happy:

  • 1 When my children catch a wave surfing
  • 2 Dog walks on an empty beach
  • 3 The smell of rainwater on geraniums
  • 4 The silence of snowfall
  • 5 Lighting the fire and reading a good book
  • 6 Sailing with my husband
  • 7 Friday night, party night with friends
