Nicky Watersfundraising project manager

I'm Nicky. I grew up greater London and joined the Alliance in October 2013, having worked in the fundraising team for UCCF: The Christian Unions for two years before that. I was lucky enough to live in beautiful Oxford for five years before I moved back to London to get married and work with the Alliance.

As Fundraising Project Manager, I work alongside Sue, Head of Supporter Relations, preparing and carrying out the Alliance's fundraising strategy. It's really exciting work and very varied –I work on appeals, trust applications, legacy fundraising and support Sue as she nurtures relationships with our Key Partners. It's a joy to get to know our many thousands of supporters and help them steward their resources well.
