FRAME, the medical research charity committed to reducing the number of animals used in scientific testing, has appointed a Fundraising Manager.
With nine years’ experience in the fundraising sector, Catriona Sinclair joins FRAME from Breast Cancer Now, where she was Prospect Research and Insight Manager, responsible for setting up a research and insight function within the philanthropy and corporate teams at the charity. Prior to this, Catriona was Individual Giving Manager for the Royal Institution of Great Britain.
Catriona has a BSc in Psychology and Zoology and an MSc in Neuropsychology from the University of Bristol.
At FRAME, Catriona will be responsible for generating income for charitable activities and keeping in regular contact with the charity’s donors and supporters, as well as connecting individuals and businesses with FRAME’s work.
Commenting on her appointment, Catriona said:
“I was attracted to the role at FRAME as it provides the opportunity to make a real difference to both human and animal lives. By researching and campaigning for more effective, human-based medical research techniques, FRAME works to replace, reduce and refine the use of animals and improve standards of animal welfare.
“FRAME’s values – brave, resourceful, collaborative, thoughtful and supportive – also struck a chord with me, as I believe that it is only through working in partnership and developing and nurturing stakeholder relationships that we can work towards sustainable outcomes and achieve real, long-lasting change.”
FRAME CEO Celean Camp added:
“As FRAME’s Fundraising Manager, Catriona will help build on our outreach and engagement work and strengthen our relationships with stakeholders and supporters by keeping them up to date with FRAME’s cutting-edge scientific work developing alternatives to laboratory animal testing.
“Catriona brings genuine enthusiasm and care for FRAME’s cause as well as a strong scientific background, enabling her to communicate our research clearly and concisely to a wide range of audiences. She joins FRAME at an exciting time as we seek to take the charity to the next level by raising our profile, increasing support and sharing our expertise and knowledge of alternatives to laboratory animals with industry and academia on a wider scale, to push for much-needed changes in policy and practice.”
