Harriet Pegler

Partnerships Fundraiser

Hello, I'm Harriet, one of Meningitis Now's Partnerships Fundraisers

The year you joined the charity

November 2021. Previously, I joined in 2009 - working in the Partnerships team too. I left in 2015 to have my eldest little boy.

A brief overview of your role - what are you responsible for?

My role as Partnerships Fundraiser is to write funding applications to charitable trusts and foundations, and to raise donations towards the costs involved in delivering our amazing support services.

Your favourite part of your role

Being able to support the charity's amazing work, by securing funding towards essential projects and services. I am also looking forward to attending our future events and meeting new families and supporters, as well as the wonderful families who I met the first time I worked at Meningitis Now.

Your biggest achievements

Professionally - securing multi-year funding from Children In Need to fund our Family Days.

Personally - I have a BA(Hons) in Law and History, but my two little boys beat that hands down - they are my biggest achievement.

A fun fact about yourself

I am married to a Lord! But, unfortunately, that doesn't make me a lady! I also toured Paris in an orchestra, playing the clarinet.
