Diane has worked in the not-for-profit sector for over 25 years, holding director-level roles for 20 years. She is passionately committed to creating a fair and just world for everyone. She is principally a highly accomplished fundraiser, but has also led teams covering Marketing, Press and PR, Communications, Campaigns, Digital, and Membership.
Diane has a strong track record of developing strategies that have significantly grown charities. She is proud of the transformational change that she has achieved for charities, and more importantly, the people that have been reached and supported as a result of improved income and visibility.
She is particularly proud of helping charities to grow not just through fundraising success, but also by securing multiple awards for services developed, delivering annual campaigns, such as National Adoption Week, working with governments to achieve change, and creating strong partnerships with organisations including The Royal Foundation which delivered the Heads Together campaign to improve mental health.
Diane has held several Trustee roles, previously at the Prisoners’ Advice Service and currently at Gingerbread, the national charity supporting single-parent families. She holds a Joint Honours degree from Goldsmiths College, University of London, and is a full member of the Chartered Institute of Fundraising.
She also keeps busy with being a mother to Allegra and looking after the family’s two dogs and four cats. She enjoys yoga and martial arts, acquiring three black belts in Shotokan Karate and currently training in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
Diane says “I am hugely excited to join The Hunger Project UK, which truly transforms the lives of people experiencing hunger and despair. I’m looking forward to using my skills and experience alongside our amazing staff and Trustees to take us to the next stage in our development, creating the step change that will enable us to reach and support many more people globally.” Diane’s joined The Hunger Project in October 2023, and is based out of London.
