Rachel Holweger has been appointed fundraising director of Hospice in the Weald just 18 months after joining the Pembury-based charity.
The Sociology graduate, who lives in Sissinghurst with her husband and two daughters, started her career in recruitment, moving into the charity world 10 years ago.
Rachel has worked in fundraising and event management for Demelza and Kent Air Ambulance and says of her new role: I feel privileged to work for a charity that has so much relevance to so many. Most people in our catchment area at some time in their lives will know someone who has been cared for by Hospice in the Weald, either as a patient, relative or friend.
Hospice in the Weald is not part of the NHS and has to raise more than 4m every year, so we are constantly having to think of new and creative ways to encourage support. I am very excited about this opportunity, which also includes managing our retail side (15 shops) and am enjoying the chance to work with a great team for the benefit of our community in West Kent and East Sussex.
