Following a successful career in sales, Doris has held a range of fundraising positions within the independent school and charity sectors, raising funds for scholarships, annual funds and campaigns and leading a major multimillion pound capital appeal for a national charity.
Having joined Harper Adams University in 2018, Doris engages with companies, alumni and Charitable Trusts connecting them directly with the University’s mission “to advance knowledge, to inspire and equip learners in our specialisms to deliver real change, and contribute to a sustainable future for the inhabitants of and habitats across our living planet."' - either through the provision of scholarships for individual students or through philanthropic investment in University infrastructure and buildings.
Working closely with industry partners, individual benefactors and academic colleagues, Doris and her team have managed to accommodate their specific motivations and requirements which led to a substantial growth of the Scholarship Programme and to significant capital investment. Coming from a farming family, Doris has a good understanding of the sector’s challenges, and she is extremely passionate about supporting young talent at the start of their careers.
