New Director of Fundraising for Teenage Cancer Trust

PAUL McKenzie has been appointed as the new Fundraising Director at Teenage Cancer Trust.

Paul joined the charity in June as Deputy Director of Philanthropy and Entertainment and was appointed to the lead role following an open selection and recruitment process, which included an interview with young people who have experienced cancer and received support from the charity.

Paul is an experienced fundraising leader, working previously for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home where he led the Philanthropy and Partnerships team. Most recently at Depaul UK, Paul created a long-term strategy for diversification of income and transformed their approach to digital and mass communications.

Paul has worked in fundraising for over 16 years and has become well respected in the sector for building strong and effective team cultures to achieve fantastic results.

Every day, seven young people in the UK aged 13-24 are diagnosed with cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust’s world-leading care and support puts young people in the best possible place, physically, mentally and emotionally, for their cancer treatment and beyond.

Commenting on Paul’s appointment, Kate Collins, Chief Executive of Teenage Cancer Trust said:

“I am delighted that Paul McKenzie is stepping up to this important role at such a critical time for Teenage Cancer Trust – and for young people with cancer. Right now, young people with cancer are feeling especially isolated and vulnerable and we are doing everything we can to maintain our vital frontline services.

“Like most charities, our income has taken a hit due to coronavirus, so Paul’s extensive experience will be key to ensuring our amazing community of supporters are motivated to continue to fund our teenage cancer wards, nurses and youth workers.

“We had a hugely high-quality pool of motivated and expert fundraising leaders apply for the role and I’d like to thank all the candidates for their interest in supporting our essential work. I am looking forward to working with Paul and seeing him, the team, our supporters and our ability to change the lives of young people with cancer thrive under his leadership.”

Paul McKenzie said:

“Since joining Teenage Cancer Trust I’ve been inspired by the young people with cancer I have met and by the front-line staff who make such an incredible difference. Right now we need to fight harder than ever for every pound of income and I’m delighted I will have the opportunity to work with the brilliant and talented Teenage Cancer Trust team to ensure we can support young people with cancer now and in the future.”

Paul McKenzie replaces Liz Tait who recently left Teenage Cancer Trust to take up a post at Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.
