Geoff Holt MBE, DL, Founder and Director -Wetwheels.  

'We engaged FF specifically to help us create a 4 year fundraising strategy for our disabled boating organisation. Juliet was quick to understand the structure and nature of our business model. Our timescales were tight but Juliet asked all the right questions and was able to present us with a much needed document on time and on budget. More than just a strategy document, Juliet identified opportunities and made recommendations to enhance our fundraising in areas we had not previously considered. Overall we are very pleased with the outcomes from this specific engagement; it saved us time and money by engaging FF’s professional services and it was refreshing to have an external evaluation and recommendations of our fundraising opportunities.'

Avril Robinson, Head of Fundraising and Communications, St Wilfrid's Hospice. 

'Working with Juliet has been an extremely positive and enjoyable experience.  Juliet came alongside the team with great ease and professionalism; she used her wealth of experience and expertise to ensure that the project was delivered successfully, on time and with good humour despite the challenge of a very tight deadline.'

Fundraising and Events Team, St Wilfrid's Hospice.

'We would like to say a special thanks you to you for everything you did to help the team prepare and get ready for our event, even coming in on the morning of the event when you had a personal pre-planned arrangement in the afternoon- that really is dedication beyond the call of duty; thank you so much!  Your advice was invaluable and having the benefit of your experience made such a difference, making sure everything was as it should be.  Comments we have received from participants show that it was a huge success; thank you for helping make it happen! We could not have done it without you.' 

Peter Newman, CEO, Dream Come True Charity.

'Juliet is a practical, industrious, knowledgeable and highly effective fundraiser. She has worked with us to increase our income from Trusts and Foundations to great effect, but has wide experience across the fundraising mix that we have also drawn upon. She is highly professional and highly personable and has become an important component of our team as we enter our silver jubilee year.'

Jennifer Hanraads, QAHH.

'As a mentor, Juliet gave me opportunities to shine and encouraged me to do things that were outside of my comfort zone - she helped me to gain confidence in my own abilities and to find out what I was capable of.  With Juliets' support I have grown both professionally and personally; I have a lot to thank her for!   

Kate Schroder MBE FRSA  

‘Extensive knowledge and skills in the non-profit sector, with exclusive fundraising skills. Specialising in financial charity 'turn-around' and one of the most accomplished Trust Fundraisers on the circuit and a valid Head of Fundraising'.

David Hood Head Of Finance, QAHH.

'Juliet quickly gained an excellent understanding of our organisations needs and goals. Her performance and hard work, made her a true asset with outstanding results exceeding expectation.'  

Stewart Nicol, Director/Trustee, ROX Music & Arts Charity.

'I am a Director/Trustee of ROX Music & Arts charity in Bognor Regis, West Sussex. Juliet was most helpful in introducing me to the world of Fundraising. She guided me through the most relevant points in bidding for funding with various bodies. These included anyone from small Donors with a few hundred pounds available up to the National Organisations like The Arts Council and The National Lottery Fund. Juliet continues to be available to provide invaluable help to our charity on a consultation basis. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a skilled professional who would be an invaluable asset to any group requiring funding.'

Catherine Harvey,Trust & Development Fundraiser, Canine Partners.

'Jules is an excellent manager and teacher. I first started at a charity as an administrator, with Jules' guidance I started to learn the wonders of Trust Fundraising. Jules is extremely organised and a hard worker with a real passion for fundraising - I have now moved on to work for another charity as the Trust & Development Fundraiser. I would not be where I am today without Jules' help and advice. I would recommend her as a consultant to any charity!'

Charlotte Bell  MSci, Trust Officer, Headway.

‘After volunteering for Juliet and being introduced to the basics of fundraising I was inspired to take up the challenge.  I've successfully sought a full time job with a national charity as a Trust Officer and  have raised over £120,000 in my first 18 months.' 

Johanna Shiu BSc MSc, Fundraising Officer, 4SIGHT.

'I was fortunate to be trained by Juliet, when I joined a charity in 2002 as a complete novice to the charitable sector. She made it easy for not only to pick up the principles of fundraising and its aims, but in addition, it became obvious that she brought a very creative and insightful approach to her work.  Juliet was also very inventive in her ideas beyond just fundraising, including getting exposure for the charity, promoting its aims, and working with a team of volunteers to achieve these aims. I would thoroughly recommend that any charity in need of rejuvenating or boosting their approach to fundraising make use of Jules, who is able to think outside of the box and continually bring fresh ideas to the table'.

Emma Nicoll, Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre. 

‘I will never forget the hand that helped us!  We have been fundraising for a new cat building and it is now built. So far we have raised £200,000 towards our £340,000 target. We met Juliet at a fundraising event and she approached us for a chat.  You could see that she generally wanted to help us improve our charity and invited us for a free consultation about trying to find funding.  We had no idea that there was so much free funding out there and her invaluable advice opened up our eyes to a whole new way of raising funds.  Since that day we have successfully gained many grants resulting in hundreds of thousands of pounds and each year the Centre has gone from strength to strength.  We can't thank Juliet enough for her kind and vital advice; the Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre has considerably benefited.  Without her we certainly wouldn't be where we are today.  Thank you Juliet’. 

Tina Ellis- Community Fundraiser

'Juliet was an excellent manager who always had an open door policy. During this time she was always supportive, encouraging and sensitive. Juliet would always discuss ideas and would always listen to suggestions with interest.   Juliet always led by example. I would certainly be pleased to work alongside her again.'
