WILPSHIRE-based Child Action Northwest has a new face of fundraising.

Nicola Terry, from Chorley has been a fundraiser for more than eight years since leaving university in 2006.

She was the first full-time fundraising development manager for Deafway in Preston before moving to Warrington Youth Club in 2012 as their grants and trusts fundraiser and then developed her role to incorporate corporate partnerships and events.

She takes over from Harriet Roberts who is now working as freelance PR and events consultant.

Nicola said: “I am really looking forward to my new role with Child Action Northwest.

“I aim to increase voluntary giving and donations by putting in place a strategy which will target all available income streams.

“I’m aiming to work alongside our dedicated staff to encourage them to share their successes, however small or large.

“Child Action Northwest has some amazing projects.

“We do great work and by hearing from the people we work with, by using their stories, we can personalise our bids to grant making trusts and foundations, corporate supporters and individuals alike.”
