Heather joined Teapot Team in October 2020 as Grants Officer (maternity cover for Louise) and now continues to work with the charity in a broader fundraising role, including supporting major gift work.

Although we have largely worked from home during the pandemic, Heather's easy confidence enabled her to fit in straight away. She hit the ground running with funding applications, working closely with our CEO on large bids.

Heather brings over 20 years' experience as a fundraiser, working in higher education, heritage and the voluntary sector. For the past 12 years, she has worked as a freelance fundraiser for charities and social enterprises across the UK. She brings with her a broad knowledge of the sector and bags of enthusiasm for the role. 

Heather is also a skilled copywriter and a qualified yoga teacher. She regularly employs the meditation and relaxation she learned in yoga when dealing with her two teenagers and her energetic spaniels, Murdo and Crombie.
