fundraising & evaluation

I’ve researched and written Activity Plans and Evaluation reports, and led bids which have secured a total of over £6Million of public funds from the Heritage Lottery Fund, various European Funds, charitable trusts and Defra. My success has come because the projects I design are always sustainable, inclusive, multi-disciplined and human-scale.


Recent successes include:

  • St Roberts of Newminster, Morpeth (HLF Grants for Places of Worship – bid writing)
  • Allendale Preschool (Charitable Trust – bid writing, delivery and event management)
  • Allendale First (HLF Start-Up grants – bid writing and project management)
  • Nenthead Chapel Restoration (HLF Heritage Grants – Audience Development & Learning Plans)

Current Clients include:

  • Epiacum Heritage (HLF Heritage Grants – bid writing)
  • South Tynedale Railway (HLF Heritage Grant – evaluation)
