Yorkhill Children's Foundation Appoints New Head of Fundraising, Marketing and Communications

Yorkhill Children's Foundation has boosted its  team with the appointment of a new Head of Fundraising, Marketing and Communications.

David Welch, originally from Clarkston in Glasgow, brings with him a wealth of third sector experience, having worked with a number of leading charities at Director level both within the UK and overseas, including Concern, Aberlour, Mercy Corps and most recently, Highland Hospice.

David's role will be to drive forward the fundraising, marketing and communications work of Yorkhill Children's Foundation through the delivery of a three year strategic plan aimed at increasing awareness of the Yorkhill brand and the work of Yorkhill Children's Foundation on a Scotland – wide level, as well as increasing public support through a wide and varied programme of innovative fundraising events and initiatives.

David said of his new role: “The team at Yorkhill Children's Foundation is young, dynamic, enthusiastic, very talented and most importantly, they are driven to deliver outstanding results.

“However, these are challenging times, especially for charities, where maintaining current levels of support and achieving targets is more difficult than before. I see my role as a great opportunity to provide the guidance and planning necessary to increase the income received by Yorkhill Children's Foundation and ensure that people are truly aware of the vital role it plays in helping to ensure that all children's who experience Yorkhill receive the best care possible and the facilities are the best they can be.

Shona Cardle, Chief Executive of Yorkhill Children's Foundation said: “David is already proving a valuable addition to the team and I have high hopes for our progress over the coming years. His experience and knowledge is second to none and I am confident that he will drive the strategic planning and development which support our overall funding strategy and objectives.”
