Cerebral palsy charity Stick ‘n’ Step has appointed a new Head of Fundraising to lead its Fundraising Team across both its centres in Wallasey and Runcorn.
Sarah Johnson, who lives in Cheshire, has joined Stick ‘n’ Step as a highly-skilled charity campaigner, with wide-ranging sector experience. From Kidney Research UK and North West Air Ambulance to several years at Hope House Children’s Hospices, she most recently worked as Head of Fundraising at Adoption Matters.
CEO of Stick ‘n’ Step, Amy Couture, said, “Sarah’s broad experience across the charity sector, particularly in building and nurturing relationships with diverse donors, will be invaluable to us. In this period of economic uncertainty, with costs soaring and demand for our services being higher than ever, we are so excited to have welcomed her to our team.”
Stick ‘n’ Step provides free weekly conductive education sessions to children and young people with cerebral palsy up to the age of 25, allowing them to gain the skills they need to live more independent lives.
The charity relies on supporters and volunteers to help raise the £750,000 required to deliver its services to over 100 families each year at its Wallasey and Runcorn centres. Find out more about the charity by visiting www.sticknstep.org
