Date : 26 June, 2015

A leading domestic abuse charity has appointed its first fundraiser.

Elizabeth Morawiecka has joined the team at West Mercia Women’s Aid, which works with domestic abuse victims in Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.

Based at the Hereford headquarters, Elizabeth’s role is a first for the charity, in the light of local authority spending cuts to domestic abuse services.

Elizabeth will work with businesses and charitable trusts to raise awareness of the work of West Mercia Women’s Aid, and develop a more diverse funding base for the organisation, providing resilience to ensure its vital work continues to have a positive impact on victims and survivors.

Elizabeth holds a degree in Accounting and Finance from Birmingham University and is a qualified chartered accountant.  After working in practice, she moved into industry working for a multi-national drinks company before becoming a finance director in a clothing business.

Elizabeth, who is from Hereford, explained: “I have always been involved in local charities and after a major health problem I focussed more on using my skills to secure funding for capital projects.  I was part of a small team that delivered a new £250,000 building for the Hereford Sea Cadets and in the last few years, I joined St Michael’s Hospice as part of the Capital Appeal, delivering the new In Patient Unit and the redevelopment of the existing hospice buildings.”

Elizabeth will spend her time at West Mercia Women’s Aid and developing relationships with funders and submitting applications to meet the organisation’s fundraising target.

Jan Frances, Chief Executive of West Mercia Women’s Aid said: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome Elizabeth to our team.  West Mercia Women’s Aid saves and transforms lives and in the light of significant funding cuts which are having a huge impact on local provision, we took the decision to recruit our own in house fundraiser.  Elizabeth is a very welcome addition and has a wealth of experience that our work will certainly benefit from.”
