Thanks to your support, the charity is growing bigger each year, and we’re bringing in more funds for Queen Square. As a result, we’re excited to be able to expand our team in the form of Alexis, Abbie and Jane, who have all brought their valuable skills to the charity.
“I joined as a Fundraising Officer late last year to look after dedicated fundraisers and oversee the challenge events. After working for another neurological charity and then an NHS charity, I was keen to work supporting the amazing work at The National Hospital and The Institute of Neurology. I’m looking into a variety of different challenge events across the country to promote on our new website – so watch this space!”
“After working and training as a teacher for six years I wanted a change. I’ve always had an interest in neurology growing up, as that was my father’s field of work. So I was excited to come on board as a Fundraising Apprentice in the charity that supports Queen Square. My father, Prof Tony Bell, completed his thesis at The Institute of Neurology – it means a lot to be a small part of his world. The things I’ve enjoyed most so far have been working on preparations for our Mission Possible gala dinner in May, and helping out with our sales stall in the hospital, where I get to meet many of the patients and chat to hospital staff. I feel very proud to be supporting such a brilliant team and a cause that is close to my heart.”
“I joined the team in September to develop the Innovation Fund, a new project which will fund breakthrough ideas in research, patient care and technology. I spent nearly ten years working for some of the UK’s largest charities including Macmillan, The NSPCC and The British Heart Foundation developing corporate-charity partnerships. The National Brain Appeal is very different, which I love. It’s inspiring being so close to the fantastic work that goes on at Queen Square. Currently I’m very busy talking to patients, supporters and working with our trustees to get the Innovation Fund off to a flying start!”
