Jacky Wilson and Sarah Slocombe have worked as freelance fundraising professionals for over ten years, following extensive careers in charity fundraising.  We have over 50 years fundraising experience between us, working for charities in the education, health, heritage and international development sectors.

We offer a wide range of experience and work with our clients in a variety of ways: providing expert consultancy advice, taking responsibility for raising funds, and even, in some cases, working within a client's fundraising department.  We have worked successfully on a number of capital appeals for a wide range of causes.

We have extensive contacts and our experience means that the time we spend for you is highly productive - we know where to look for funds, who to talk to and how to structure bids and applications.  We know the rules but, to be honest, we spend a lot of time breaking them and we pride ourselves on finding innovative solutions for funding and sponsorship.
