Zoe joins #TeamRaise at exciting time

Zoe NichollsRaise has appointed the first of a number of new staff with the intention of growing the charity and its impact over the next couple of years.

Zoe Nicholls joins the team as Administrator and Assistant to our Charity Director, Sofia Sheikh, and is based alongside her at the charity’s office in Willow House, Watford General Hospital. Zoe lives locally – in Rickmansworth – and until recently was working for the COVID-19 Support Visitor Helpline, so she is very familiar with the hospital and the town already.

Sofia said “It’s wonderful to be able to welcome Zoe to Raise. Of course, we have a lot of work to do at the moment supporting our three hospitals during the public health emergency, but Raise already had plans to grow and do more – it’s an exciting time for us as we are taking on three new members of staff soon and really stepping up our fundraising activity. Also, I have to add, it’s great to have someone helping to organise my working life as the team grows!”

In her spare time Zoe is a fundraiser for Marie Curie (see this link) and an online blogger/diarist (see this link too) with a particular interest in mental health issues.
