Erin joined Cause4 as a Development Associate in September 2020, after spending 2 years as a Community Fundraiser for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. Prior to this, Erin trained as a classical singer and spent a number of years working professionally in opera, including with English Touring Opera and Opera North in the UK, as well as productions around the world, including in China and Mexico.
Erin is currently studying towards a BSc in Psychology with the Open University and is focussing her final year research piece on philanthropy and attitudes to charitable giving. Her interest in the charity sector began when she worked to create a support choir in Stafford, for people who had been affected by cancer. Since then, Erin has started another choir, for children, and has worked with a number of small Not-for-Profit organisations to develop their fundraising and communications strategy.
She is interested in the wide variety of charitable causes and what makes people choose where they will give their support.
