Macmillan Cancer Relief has appointed a new Lottery and Statutory Funding Co-ordinator to work with Joe Waterton, Lottery and Statutory Funding Manager.
Karen Devine will be joining the charity to expand the fundraising opportunities from Lottery and statutory sources.
Since 2000, £6.5m of Lottery and statutory funding has been awarded to Macmillan for a variety of services and posts ranging from welfare rights advice to Macmillan GP Facilitators and carers’ schemes.
Joe Waterton, Macmillan Lottery and Statutory Funding Manager, said:
“With Karen on board, we will be able to extend our work in providing advice for cancer self-help and support groups – enabling them to apply for small grants from Lottery programmes like Awards for All. By doing so, we’ll be making a big difference at community level.”
Karen joins Macmillan from the Wellcome Trust where she assessed and managed grants for Research Fellows and other academics. She’ll be working alongside Joe in preparing funding bids and managing grant income for the charity.
