Introducing Alyson Smith, the Olive Tree Fundraising Manager

Alyson joined The Olive Tree team in November as our official fundraiser and has been a fantastic addition to the team flipping pancakes in fancy dress, organising the Motown night in March in Horsham and completing the Pillars to Plough sponsored walk.  Alyson has lots of ideas for further events including a wine tasting event at Bolney vineyard on October 20th.  

Alyson says "The Olive Tree clearly is an important & much loved place to many residents of Crawley and the surrounding area. I always welcome any local fundraising initiatives, from having a collection tin in your work place to any larger events - every penny helps!”  Alyson is pictured above with students from Oriel High School in Crawley who raised an amazing £13,500 for the Olive Tree via their annual sponsored walk.

Please contact Alyson on Alyson@olivetreecancersupport.org.uk or 07434 81963 if you have any fundraising ideas to suggest to her.   Equally, if you are already planning a fundraising event of your own, please let Alyson know so that we can help to promote the event for you.
