Social Responsibility

I am actively involved with a number of charities and I have been part of the  Gives (charity & volunteering) team and the Sustainability committee in my previous place of work for 8 years. I have organised volunteering events for over 150 employees in the last seven years, working with a range of charities (mainly environmental) including

With Monty Halls at the MCS AGM 2012

In support of the MCS I have run the ‘Big Blue Day’ in my workplace since 2008 ( generating total donations of over £50,000), and arranged for the adoption of a beach in Essex during summers 2009/10/11/13/14/15 where I ran educational events for over 75 volunteers. MCS awarded me Fundraiser of the Year in 2011-12 and Outstanding Achievement Award in 2015.

I use my skills as web designer to do pro-bono work creating and maintaining a number of non profit websites (Big Mamathon, Badia di Pattano). I organise a number of personal events to raise money for various charities (including supperclubs where I cook for people in my own home).

I also set up a small company called Monkey Leaf to produce and sell home made, hand made natural palm oil free soap and donate profits to the Orangutan Appeal UK.

Given my extensive experience gained through years of corporate social responsibility, I am able to act as a consultant to those individuals or / and enterprises who are looking to support charitable causes, whether staff volunteering or direct donations, within their philanthropic strategy.  Please get in touch if you wish to discuss further.

I am a member of various charities such as English Heritage, British Museum, Imperial War Museum.
