Client Testimonial

I have just finished a mentoring programme with Lynda and gained so much from the experience. Lynda is an absolutely brilliant coach, and all-round fundraiser, and had lots of skills, expertise and ideas that she was willing to share with me.


We worked specifically on major gifts fundraising, but was also able to guide me on other issues such as recruitment and time and workload management. Lynda was very approachable and would always take time out of her day to answer my questions.


I really enjoyed working with Lynda and would highly recommend her as a coach/mentor to fundraisers of all levels.
