Danny – Our Fundraising and Communications Officer

What does your job entail?
I provide support to all of the fundraising team, including corporate, community and regular giving, as and when they need it. I also make sure all the donations are logged correctly and that people get thanked.

When and why did you come to work for Dementia Support?
I joined in January 2020 and it’s my first job out of university. I studied politics with the intention of going into a job that helped people and it leant itself to data handling.

What is the best thing about working here?
We actually help people and all my colleagues are friendly. It’s also great to see the outcome of the fundraising in the good it does our customers.
