Meet Our Fundraisers
Sue has spent over 20 years in a fundraising environment within both local and national charities. Having worked as an Area Retail Manager for the Imperial Cancer Research Fund for seven years, she moved to Compton in 1997 to act as General Manager to the trading company. Under her leadership, the shops operation has had great success, culminating in three successive national awards for financial achievement. In April 2008, Sue was promoted to oversee both fundraising and trading operations within the hospice, as well as taking overall responsibility for public relations functions.
