We are really pleased to introduce our latest member of staff Katherine Bavage to the Wikimedia community as the Fundraising Organiser of Wikimedia UK.
Katherine’s role will be to coordinate work around the annual fundraiser, and work with volunteers to expand opportunities to attract fundraising for projects in partnership with other organisations. She brings to the role her fundraising experience from working in the Higher Education sector in Development roles, as well as experiences of being a volunteer and board member in other organisations.
Her interests include board games (think 7 Wonders, not Monopoly) and playing Roller Derby – she skates as ‘Mo Roll’em’ for a league near her home town of Leeds.
She will be based between the office in Old Street and Leeds before moving to London full-time in October, and will be using the commuting opportunity to get to some wikimeets going on around the UK. Her contact number is 07803 505 171 and she can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
