Chris is from the UK and has worked in fundraising since 2010 after a volunteering trip to South Africa really opened his eyes to the injustices across the world. Prior to working for the Mental Health Foundation he worked for Oxfam in the UK and Aotearoa and supported Oxfam internationally for a short time. Chris is passionate about fundraising and chairs the board of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association.
In his spare time, Chris likes to get outdoors as much as he can, either surfing, tramping or climbing. He is a member of the New Zealand Alpine Club as a committee member and also volunteers with the Aotearoa Access Trust supporting their fundraising.
