The Haemochromatosis Society has appointed a part time Events Coordinator to help build our events programme. Debs Knight will be working on fundraising events and our programme of patient information and educational days.
Debs joined the team in Rugby last week, though many of our members would have met her at our main conference early in April, which she attended to help out as well as learn about GH and the society.
“I am delighted to be working for the charity at such an exciting time”, said Debs. “I love the concept of the Patient Information Days that THS has been developing and I look forward to arranging more of these in the future. The fundraising programme is really important to the charity’s success and sustainability in the future too and I know the trustees have got plenty of ideas for us to be working on very quickly.”
David Head, our Chief Executive, added “Our members made Debs feel very welcome at the conference. The expansion of the team is a natural step for us to be taking as the workload increases and I know the trustees’ investment in more resources will pay dividends in all respects.”
Debs brings a wealth of experience that will benefit The Haemochromatosis Society and will be based in our office in Rugby, working 20 hours per week. She is married with three children and lives in Leicestershire.
