Katie Edmondson

Hello! I’m Katie E and am the Senior Fundraiser for the South of England, job sharing with Katie T and based in Bristol. I have been at KIDS since November 2016 and love working for such a passionate charity.

I really enjoy working with such a lovely team, which includes Kitty in the South East, and we are so pleased to have doubled the income for the South since we started. Working for KIDS has been great so far, from developing a new strategy for the region to completing my first Half Marathon for KIDS in 2017 – it’s been fun and challenging!

I have worked in the charity sector for over ten years now in a variety of roles - I really enjoy being involved in events and working with corporate supporters as well as people in the community that want to give something back to charity.

Outside of work I love spending time with my little boy, cycling and exploring different places.

I’m Katie T and I am one third of the fantastic mini-team of fundraisers who cover the South of England – along with Katie E and Kitty. We all cover from Bristol across to Berkshire and Kent and down to Hampshire so a pretty big area!

I’ve worked in the charity sector for over 10 years and have been at KIDS since Nov 2016. I really enjoy the challenge of raising money for such a great cause and love meeting new people, and working with companies/organisations who want to give back to their community.

My biggest achievement at KIDS to date (a joint one with our little team, Katie E and Kitty) is increasing income in the area from £60k to over £120k in 2016/17. Here’s to even more over the next 12 months!

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my family, holidaying, reading and – for my sins – running! This March I’ll be taking on the Bath Half to raise money for KIDS services in the South.
