New Head of Fundraising and Development joins CACT

Lorna Taylor has joined Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) as Head of Fundraising and Development.

In this newly created role, Lorna will be responsible for implementing a fundraising strategy for CACT and maximising opportunities from events planned for the 25th anniversary year. Lorna will also oversee press, marketing, bid writing and the impact & monitoring Departments.

Lorna has joined CACT from a role as Corporate Partnerships Manager for Refuge charity, and previously to that held the same position at the National Literacy Trust. She has a wealth of additional experience in the third sector, including as trustee of Voluntary Services Lewisham.

Speaking on her first day, Lorna said: “I’m very excited to be starting this new role with an organisation as reputable as Charlton Athletic Community Trust. I can’t wait to be part of the trust’s growth and continued success.”

CEO Jason Morgan MBE said: “We’re really pleased to welcome Lorna to CACT in what is a vitally important role. The experience, skills and expertise she brings to the organisation will really help us to strengthen our relationships with patrons, partners and help to raise additional funds to support CACT`s work in our local communities.  

As we reach our 25th anniversary this summer it’s important that we recognise the incredible impact our work has on the local community but also put plans in place to continue growing and positively affecting the lives of people who we work with.
