Experienced fundraiser Kate Davis has joined Liverpool charity Ronald McDonald House, Alder Hey, which provides accommodation for the families of seriously ill children at the hospital
Liverpool charity Ronald McDonald House, Alder Hey, has appointed a new head of fundraising.
Kate Davis has worked in fundraising for almost 20 years, and was most recently head of fundraising for the Huntington’s Disease Association, supporting families across England and Wales affected by the disease.
She started her career at SHADO a community support and children’s centre in Liverpool and moved on to the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, spending five years establishing their fundraising appeals.
After that she moved to the University of Liverpool where she worked as a prospect researcher, and then became development manager for the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, leading fundraising for many capital campaigns.
Kate joins the charity, known as ‘Mac House’ in its 25th anniversary year, and is spearheading a campaign to encourage corporate partners to work closely with the organisation, which provides accommodation for the families of seriously ill children at Alder Hey.
She said: “We are keen to develop some meaningful relationships with businesses and have an array of volunteering opportunities to offer. Businesses who we have worked with in the past have commented how much they have enjoyed working with us.
“Charity of the year partnerships and financial corporate support allow the house to continue making a difference to families, enabling them to stay together during an incredibly traumatic period in their lives.
We have naming opportunities and packages of support to fit all business sizes. Ronald McDonald House Liverpool is a completely independent charity and relies on funding to cover the annual running costs of £600,000 a year.”
