Haven Appeal appoints Marketing Graduate
The team raising funds for the Haven Appeal have been joined by a graduate fresh out of university with a degree in marketing and business enterprise.
Iain Boyd takes up his post as graduate marketing project co-ordinator with the Elsie Normington Foundation on 7 January, next year.
Iain hails from Lochs, near Stornoway, Lewis, and is a Gaelic speaker.
He has completed his studies at Strathclyde University and is delighted to be able to put his degree into practice with his first job in marketing.
He said: “I am delighted to have secured this one-year placement with the Foundation to promote the Haven Appeal. Providing Scotland’s first fully integrated centre for children and young people with complex and severe learning difficulties is such an worthwhile project. I will be doing all I can to help raise the funds that are required to make the dream come true.”
Elsie Normington, Chairman of the Elsie Normington Foundation, said: “We are delighted to have Iain on board. His marketing skills and enthusiasm will be a great boost for our funding raising efforts.”
The Haven Appeal aims to raise £4 million towards the cost of delivering the Haven Centre at Murray Road, Smithton, Inverness, on a site which has lain derelict since fire destroyed the Culloden Court Nursing Home in 2010. Already £1.1 million has been raised.
