Age Cymru has appointed three new members of staff.
Richard Nicholls is the organisation’s first-ever Director of Income Resources and is responsible for retail, trading enterprises, fundraising and Age Cymru’s communications team.
He joins Age Cymru from Tenovus and has a 13 year background in fundraising and sales.
“I wanted to join Age Cymru when I saw that Age Concern Cymru and Help the Aged in Wales had merged to form one stronger voice.
“It’s a model that I hope other charities in Wales will follow in order to avoid duplication of effort and to put the beneficiaries at the centre of their work.“
Claire Morgan takes over as Age Cymru’s Director of Corporate Services and is responsible for the charity’s strategic direction and running its corporate services division including the Information and Advice service for older people.
With a background in business and economic development, her previous role was with the South East of England Development Agency (a regional development agency) and Social Enterprise Berkshire (a social enterprise business advice service).
“I’m excited to be working for an organisation whose aims I believe in, where my management skills can be put to best use.
“I’m really looking forward to working with my colleagues in Age Cymru’s Corporate Services team to make sure we continue to deliver the best possible services we can for older people across Wales.”
Nia Butler is in newly-created post of Individual and Community Fundraising Manager and is responsible for generating income for Age Cymru from individual donors, supporters and community groups.
She joins from the Welsh Rugby Union and has a background in fundraising.
“I’m enjoying working for Age Cymru as it gives me the opportunity to use my experience and skills to raise much- needed funds to help older people in Wales.
“Every day here is different and I’m really happy to be part of such a dedicated and hard-working team.”
