“Not only did Lesley deliver the funding, but she brought energy, intelligence and knowledge of the sector as well.”

Lesley Hynes

Hands-on Fundraising

Lesley works in organisations where there is no salaried or experienced fundraiser, and where she can use her networking skills to add value to the fundraising and deliver the resources required to make the project, or service a reality. She has particular success in raising money for salaries and multi year projects from trusts and major donors.

Lesley is based in Walthamstow village and is well placed to work with charities across the UK. She is efficient and flexible in her use of administrative resources and gives her clients an excellent cost to outcome ratio.

A typical model is for a charity to work with Lesley for 4-6 days a month in order to deliver their regular hands on-fundraising.

Case Study

“I worked with Lesley because of her efficiency, communications skills and personality. She was innovative in her approach to making bids, gave us a fresh perspective and had a sound understanding of what makes a successful bid, across a whole range of different funders. She gave us a constructive critique of the organisation's presentation and profile with an end view of how this would impact on funding. Not only did she deliver the funding, but she brought energy, intelligence and knowledge of the sector as well.”

Martin Green, Chief Executive of the English Community Care Association
