Our energetic Fundraising Team organises our varied and interesting events calendar, as well as managing relationships with the organisations and individuals that so kindly support our charity.

Meet the Team

Heading up the Fundraising Team, Caroline is also a member of the Management Team. Confusingly Caroline shares the same name as our Chair Dr Caroline Jessel, but is very much her own person. She handles any PR or Fundraising challenge, but is totally unqualified to deal with any medical issues!  Heading up the team is a rewarding and busy experience, covering all areas of PR, marketing, design, fundraising and attending all sorts of events.  To contact her



Anyes is our Community Fundraiser, organising all our fabulous events, assists with events run by our fabulous Kent community and further afield.  She also keeps the media informed of our latest news.  Anyes is the first point of contact for anyone who is taking on a challenge to fund raise for Dandelion Time, giving lots of advice, branded running shirts and leaflets, etc.  She often joins in with fundraisers when they are doing running challenges!  Contact her by mailing, thank you.



Louise generates the interesting and varied content for our social media platforms, keeping our website relevant and up-to-date.  Louise also takes care of our database so we can keep in touch with our supporters.  To join our database, give us change of details, or any feedback about our website, please contact her    Louise also supports the rest of the team and likes nothing better than being asked to make an event poster or take photographs.  Like the rest of the team and all our staff, she volunteers her time at our events.
