He was recently made a fellow of the Institute of Fundraising, which he also chaired. In addition, he served as chair of the International Fundraising Congress, Europe’s largest annual gathering of fundraisers.
Paul is passionate about the work of the British Red Cross, as are their loyal, committed and energetic supporters. His role is to ensure anyone who wants to support them can do so in ways that suit them.
