We are happy to announce that Pauline Burnett, previously the Editor of Highland Life Magazine, is our new Fundraising Manager! We're looking forward to announcing new projects and events all centred around raising funds and awareness for Birchwood Highland so that we can continue to make an impact in the local community in aiding recovery and supporting individuals with mental ill health and complex needs.
As part of the charity’s senior management team, Pauline has been tasked with identifying new revenue streams and driving fundraising activity, which are essential to support the delivery of Birchwood Highland’s vital life changing services across the region. Speaking of her new role, Pauline said: “Around 1 in 4 of us will experience mental ill health at some point in our lives. Birchwood Highland depends on fundraising and sponsorship to develop and improve their mental health services. This means helping people build better lives for themselves, maintain independence and enjoy acceptance within their communities.”
