Poppy is a charity fundraising and marketing consultant with almost 20 years’ experience in the voluntary sector.
She spent 15 years at Cancer Research UK and led the campaigns team, including the Stand Up to Cancer campaign.
Since 2017 Poppy has run her own consultancy business with clients including Save the Children, Macmillan Cancer Support and Unicef UK’s Soccer Aid campaign, which raised a record £7.9m last year. She is also a board trustee of First Light Southwest, a charity supporting people in Cornwall, Devon, and Wiltshire who have been affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence.
Poppy says: “I’m passionate about helping charity leaders, fundraisers and marketers transform their performance and I hope my diverse experience will be an asset to the LEP. It’s an exciting time to be joining the team and I look forward to championing Cornwall and Scilly.”
