You will have a clear sense of the potential we have to grow and develop our corporate fundraising and the drive and determination to secure new partnerships. You will cultivate and develop existing relationships to ensure that we are able to celebrate more milestones like the three multi-million pound partnerships we have had in the last 12 months.
