We had reached a stage where we had grown beyond all expectation but our fundraising strategy needed to be updated.
Paul rapidly devised a fundraising strategy and we quickly put it into place. It included trust fundraising, community fundraising, and event fundraising. He also helped us develop areas which were in need of modernising, in particular development of a new website and video and social media like Facebook and Twitter.
In addition Paul has advised us on updating our payroll and human resource systems; and how we communicate with staff and volunteers which have improved the running of the organisation.
He has also been responsible for training our staff and volunteers in the new systems.
We are grateful to Paul for his contribution to the continued success of Stray Aid.
