Jubilee Sailing Trust creates new role to strengthen fundraising

The Jubilee Sailing Trust (JST) has created a new strategic role, head of corporate and community giving, to strengthen its fundraising activity.

Appointed to the new role is Dawn Ingram, who brings with her extensive experience in the maritime charity sector, having previously worked at the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity (RNRMC) and the Sailors Society. She also enjoyed a spell with the large regional charity, Wessex Cancer Trust.

Ingram’s track record of implementing national and community fundraising events and campaigns will dovetail into her day-to-day management of JST’s corporate partnerships as well as supporting the charity’s branches across the UK.

“I’m hugely excited to be working with the JST,” says Ingram. “The charity is giving everyone the opportunity to explore their potential through adventures at sea and I am so proud to be a part of that.”

Ingram’s career highlights include creating and delivering the corporate partnership scheme at the RNRMC, and organising the Asia Challenge event at Sailors Society, which resulted in over 150 people achieving the climb to Laban Rata and 135 climbing to the summit of Mount Kinabalu, raising an impressive $570,000 along the way.

She has recently graduated from the Cobseo Emerging Leader programme and was selected to speak as a panellist at The Charity Partnerships Conference in February 2021.
