NABS Fundraising Director Charlie Parkin to Step Down from Role
Charlie Parkin, director of fundraising at NABS, is to leave the organisation after 12 years of service.
Charlie’s achievements over the past decade include helping to double NABS’ fundraising income and taking responsibility for its fundraising events, including annual industry gala Stranger than Summer which last year raised a record £155,566.
All money raised by Charlie and her team goes directly to NABS’ range of support services, enabling the organisation to meet the rapidly increasing demand for its free well-being services for the advertising and media industry, including its Advice Line, Masterclasses and coaching – the latter experiencing a 30% rise in demand last year alone.
Diana Tickell, CEO, NABS, says: “The success of NABS, now helping a record number of people in our industry, wouldn’t have been possible without Charlie’s hard work and fundraising ability. We will miss her dedication, energy and enthusiasm, but we know that we will continue to have Charlie as a lifelong friend and supporter.”
