St Richard’s Hospice has appointed Tricia Cavell as the charity’s new director of fundraising.
Ms Cavell, from Worcester, has worked for St Richard’s for more than nine years following a career in banking and finance.
She was previously St Richard’s fundraising manager and said she was looking forward to her new role.
She said: “It’s a great honour to be appointed fundraising director for St Richard’s Hospice and the challenges that brings. I am delighted to have the support of the board of governors and I look forward to working with the community, our volunteers and supporters to raise the funds required to support our patients and families.”
The current hospice director of fundraising Marilyn Peachey is stepping down after ten years in the role. She will continue to work part time for St Richard’s focusing on raising funds through trusts and individual giving.
Meanwhile, Rachel Jones from Malvern has been appointed as corporate partnerships and events fundraiser and Lizzie Brazier is joining as fundraising assistant.
