When the Eight Foundation was founded in 2017, Sue was appointed as Secretary to the Trustees and attended all meetings in order to record grant approvals and note the subsequent actions required.
‘From the beginning, I could see first-hand all the good that was being done with donations received by the Eight Foundation and instantly shared the passion for the causes it supported,’ she recalls.
As Brand & Engagement Leader at Eight Wealth Management, Sue has had years of experience running numerous client events, so offers the Trustees insight into what people enjoy, like to be involved in and how best to motivate fundraising and raise awareness of the Foundation’s achievements. ‘My intention is to bring my knowledge to the team in order to find new and inventive ways of reaching out to the wider community and helping even more individuals and smaller organisations who are in need of support.’
‘I feel hugely privileged to have had the opportunity to be involved in the Eight Foundation from its early stages, understand and appreciate the aims of the charity and support Victoria in her role as Foundation Manager, so I was thrilled to be asked to step up to join the Trustees and look forward to working with them.’
