Te Omanga’s Fundraising & Marketing team are a dedicated resource of professional events, communications, retail, merchandising, sponsorship and marketing experts. Each year this team needs to raise $2.5million to bridge the gap between the support of local DHBs and the cost to provide our services.
It’s our pleasure to introduce them to you now.
Fundraising Relationship Manager
Te Omanga Hospice is such an amazing asset to the Hutt Valley and I am proud to be part of the Te Omanga family. I love working in the community I live in and being able to give back to my community. The Fundraising Team raises money to pay for the operational costs of the hospice.
Part of my role is sustaining and building community relationships to help support Te Omanga’s service. Because we live in such a generous community, who value the work of Te Omanga this is a positive job with everyday examples of generosity and great kindness.
The other part of my role is looking after bequests, events, corporate sponsorships, major gifts, donor acquisition and regular giving.
Please email me if you would like to discuss our fundraising programme at any time, my door is always open.
Marketing and Communications Manager
I enjoy creating communications which are clear, client focused and creative. This has been a focus for me over my career where I have worked for nine years in marketing and communications roles. While raising children, I enjoyed working as a volunteer in various roles at not-for-profit organisations.
It is both refreshing and exciting to have the opportunity to work for Te Omanga Hospice, which has such a strong brand in the community, provides an exceptional service and is so well respected.
In my role at Te Omanga, I am responsible for planning, our website, social media, newsletters, direct mail and collateral.

I was inspired to join Te Omanga Hospice in 2017 when the opportunity arose to coordinate our capital fundraising campaign for the new hospice. I love engaging with our very special and generous donors who truly understand the value of what Te Omanga does and means to so many in our community.
Although we need to raise millions of dollars to rebuild the hospice, I am not daunted by this challenge. Previously, I raised the funds to rebuild the Ronald McDonald House in Wellington. With 25 years experience working in the not-for-profit sector, I have a wealth of management expertise and fundraising experience to bring to Te Omanga.
Please email me if you would like to discuss our capital fundraising campaign.
My role is responsible for supporting the Fundraising Relationship, Business Development and Communications and Marketing Managers. This includes managing fundraising projects, working with local businesses and the community, managing our database, preparing grant applications and event coordination.
Before commencing at Te Omanga, I worked in administrative positions both here and in England. I am originally from Shrewsbury in Shropshire. I have always thoroughly enjoyed the event side of my roles, so this led me to look for a position working in events, particularly in the not-for-profit sector.
Throughout my life I have loved fundraising in my own time so it’s exciting to be doing this every day in my job! Feeling like I have made a difference is something that helps me sleep well at night.
