Katherine joined Cumberland Lodge in February 2017 as Development Director. She is responsible for delivering our fundraising strategy and raising funds to support our expanding educational programme.

While at Oxford she held a number of pan-university roles and was also Head of Development for the university’s Department for Continuing Education.

Our charity's vision of a more socially cohesive society resonates strongly with Katy’s personal outlook and ambitions, and she looks forward to supporting the Lodge in fostering learning and critical thinking via its educational activities, in pursuit of this aim.
