City to Sea is a not-for-profit campaigning organisation on a mission to prevent plastic pollution at source. Our award-winning campaigns, like Refill and Plastic Free Periods, target the items most commonly found on our beaches and polluting our rivers, from food packaging to cotton buds. As Head of Development, I am focused on driving growth in the circular economy, to make refill and reuse accessible and affordable, and ultimately phasing out single-use. I head up our public sector partnerships, generate funding from grant making bodies, head up special projects and develop innovative new services and partnerships. I have 25 years’ experience across multiple sectors including environmental, FMCG, retail, leisure and culture and am currently studying for masters in Strategy, Change and Leadership at University of Bristol.
