The five Year 2 Cause4 fundraising Fellows and their Host organisations in the South West were:
Lindsay Harrod was Fellow at Dorset Arts Trust (now the Arts Development Company). Lindsay’s role involved working with six other arts organisations in the county, gaining a range of experience across their very different strategies, and establishing a fundraising network for professionals to share knowledge and collaboratively increase capacity in the county.
Lindsay now works as Trusts & Foundations Manager at Spitalfields Music.
“The fellowship has been an amazing professional and personal development opportunity. It has given me so much more than just skills and knowledge; I’ve had the chance to see an organisation from loads of different angles. I’ve foremost gained amazing skills and experience, but also a lot of confidence, some amazing friends, and a better sense of what I really want to achieve in my career.” Lindsay Harrod
Hannah Keville was Fellow for Create Gloucestershire. Hannah helped Create Gloucestershire to develop its income generating strategy, secured funding from trusts, undertook prospect research for corporate sponsors and supported partner organisations to grow their individual giving and equip their volunteers and trustees.
Hannah now works as Development Manager for the National Centre for Circus Arts.
Hannah Litherland was Fellow for Lighthouse Poole. Hannah undertook rigorous capacity-building work for the Lighthouse. She also directly raised funds for the organisation through trusts, supported the organisation’s capital campaign with cultivation events and marketing and revised the Lighthouse’s corporate packages.
Hannah now works in Bristol as Development Officer at Tobacco Factory Theatres, Bristol.
Lizi Morse was Fellow for Newlyn Gallery, The Exchange and Miracle Theatre. Lizi supported and organised cultivation events and raised money for both organisations from Trusts, corporate sponsorship and individual giving. The majority of her work was spent building both organisations’ capacity to fundraise more effectively in the future.
Lizi has continued fundraising in Cornwall at Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange and in a freelance capacity.
“The fellowship has been an exceptional opportunity, full to the brim with hard work, fun and challenges. Sharing my time between two very different organisations and studying for the postgraduate certificate in Arts Fundraising and Leadership has given me great insight into how fundraising theory can be utilised across the board. Without a doubt, I would never have taken the risk and relocated to Cornwall had I not been accepted on to the Fellowship. I am truly grateful for this fantastic experience.” Lizi Morse
Michael now works for Rambert, Britain’s oldest dance company, as their Trusts & Foundations Manager.
