Community Fundraiser

I joined the hospice in July 2015 as a Community Fundraiser. I have worked for several charities over the last 20 years and working for Lakelands Hospice is a dream come true.  I feel very privileged to be part of the Lakelands team, chatting to and getting to know our patients, whilst working alongside our fantastic team of volunteers and staff.

marina profileThe role of Community Fundraiser is very varied and hectic, no two days are the same, but it is really enjoyable and rewarding.  My highlights so far include; organising a ‘Vintage Tea Dance’, designing a corporate calendar for 2016 and ‘Dragon Boat Racing’!

  • Hobbies - I am actively involved with Girl Guiding and a leader at Kingswood Rainbows.  I really enjoy family time, going to music festivals and chilling out in my Moroccan ‘She Shed’.
  • Favourite Book - ‘Ps, I Love You’ – Cecilia Ahern
  • Pets - None at present, I lost my wonderful 12 year old cat Tallulah last year
  • First job - Paper round
  • Likes - Making people smile, kindness, laughter and John Bishop!
  • Dislikes - Greed, bad manners and disloyalty
  • What you wanted to be when you grew up - Hotel Manager
