What people say about us

Mark Davyd
CEO, Music Venue Trust
“We have many team and board members who are enthusiastic but inexperienced in fundraising – Lucy laid out a robust road map which was understandable for all. Lucy’s work was extremely thorough and outcomes driven. The Board and team were particularly appreciative of her flexibility around availability and her very professional and amicable approach. She genuinely felt like a member of the team.”
Dana Segal
Rebellious Humanitarian, Adapt for Arts
“Lucy is my absolute go-to freelancer when I need extra capacity. Reliable & thorough, she always delivers on time and to budget. Her specialism in grants – writing and researching – is particularly impressive too. I’ve collaborated on several projects with Lucy and look forward to more collaborations too.”
Sarah Elderkin
Cultural Policy Manager, Manchester City Council
“Lucy delivered an expert session to equip small creative and cultural organisations in Manchester with a good understanding of the applications process and to improve their chances of success. 
She really went the extra mile with follow-up advice we could circulate to webinar attendees. The feedback demonstrated that her support and advice was well received and made a difference to the success of applicants from the city.”
