With experience in events management, digital marketing, volunteer management and communications, Ella is a passionate advocate of the charity sector and believes in the profound difference non-profit organisations can make in their communities.
While studying for her undergraduate degree in History and Sociology at the University of Manchester Ella volunteered at a local social enterprise, FoodCycle, where she helped turn donated surplus food into free meals for those in need.
She has also worked as an intern in the Community Fundraising and Communications departments at the British Red Cross, writing grant applications, managing social media accounts, researching fundraising trends and supporting at regional and national events.
More recently Ella worked in events fundraising at St Ann’s Hospice, one of the largest hospices in the country, where she helped manage mass participation fundraising events of 1k+ participants from inception to delivery.
Ella is a keen runner and outdoors enthusiast and takes any opportunity she can to roam the hills around Greater Manchester and beyond.
