We don’t like blowing our own trumpet so here’s what some of our clients have to say…
"A very big thank you for all you have done to focus the fundraising team and also for your very helpful and vital feedback to trustees. I have very much appreciated the increased detail and clarity you have brought to the role".
Rhona Seviour, Garden House Hospice Care, Hertfordshire
"Thank you very much for all your support and hard work in helping us to produce our Case For Support. Already it has proved very useful and I have no doubt it will continue to do so. It has been a pleasure working with you.
Lucy Pryce, Making The Leap, London
"You took hold of our Fundraising Department reigns and led the team to a new beginning..... I am sure the foundation you have set will be a great stepping stone"
Jan Burgess, Sue Ryder St John's Hospice, Bedfordshire
"Cath quickly developed very strong relationships with the other executive team members, and with the Trustees who quickly came to value her opinion and experience. Her support and advice to me was very valuable, especially as we went through the recruitment of the permanent director. Although she only worked for us part time, she was a very hard worker and got through as more work than most full-time equivalents!"
Jon Rosser, World Child Cancer, London
"It has been great working with you, I have certainly learnt lots".
Mark Hemmings, Sue Ryder St John's Hospice, Bedfordshire
“Thanks for all your invaluable help.”
David Brewer, East & North Herts Hospitals Charity, Stevenage
"The Hospice of St Francis had never considered using a Fundraising Consultant previously and, as a smaller charity, we thought long and hard about investing in this way. However, Cath has delivered excellent value for money throughout her time with us...she brings with her a wealth of fundraising experience and will gladly share her wisdom, both about fundraising and charities as a whole. I would highly recommend C3 Fundraising to any charity, large or small, looking to develop its fundraising function. Whenever we have a senior fundraising initiative that needs more support than we can provide in-house, we turn to Cath'.
Dr Ros Taylor MBE DL, The Hospice of St Francis, Berkhamsted
“Cath is clearly target-driven and during the short time available she provided many valuable leads which we are confident will be converted into new supporters in the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.”
Elin Horgan, The National Trust, Swindon
“C3 Fundraising provided part-time consultancy services relating to trust and corporate fundraising for five months. The relatively short amount of time available, combined with the large amount of information which needed to be digested, made this a challenging role, but Cath was able to rise to it well. She was highly efficient and demonstrated excellent commitment and drive for results.”
Anthony Lunch, MondoChallenge Foundation, Northampton
“C3 Fundraising worked with the East & North Herts Hospital Charity for over a year. Both the trustees and I have found Cath to be a genuine asset for the charity. She has a calm, organised and highly efficient approach to her work and was able to lead and enhance the day to day work of the fundraising team. Cath’s ability to very clearly and concisely distil and communicate key information and provide advice, both strategic and operational, was of great help in building understanding and consensus with charity trustees. Cath is a clear and politically astute communicator, able to hold her own in debates with a group of directors.”
Sarah Brierley, East & North Herts Hospitals Charity, Stevenage
“Cath worked as a fundraising consultant for Book Aid International for over two years, primarily supporting us with corporate fundraising. Cath is an excellent all-round fundraiser, and I very much value her contribution to my team. She has a strong analytical mind and is very thoughtful and clear in her advice and judgements. She is also extremely capable in delivery: she works extremely efficiently and always produces high quality work quickly. In addition, I have never doubted her ability to represent Book Aid International at any level, and she has developed and presented a number of pitches to potential funders for us.”
Jacqui Scott, Book Aid International, London
“C3 Fundraising successfully covered the vacant role of Director of Fundraising between January and August 2014. We subsequently commissioned C3 to lead on a Cabinet Office bid – a joint project between four partners with a very tight deadline. I am delighted that just four consultancy days resulted in us securing a £110k grant.”
Sue Plummer, Peace Hospice Care, Watford
