Fundraiser: Kristen Lindop
Employed to fundraise for the YPTE since March 2010, Kristen concentrates on working with Trusts and Foundations to support YPTE’s work in environmental education. With a highly successful fundraising background, most recently at Research Autism she is busy making sure YPTE’s current funders are kept up-to-date with progress while also building relationships with new funders. A childhood in Cornwall full of den building, tree climbing and exploration gave Kristen a deep and long-lasting love of nature and being outdoors, which she is now able to share with her own children. She is also enjoying being part of a team which works to make caring for the environment accessible to children across the UK. Kristen feels very fortunate to now be in the position to use her skills and experience to support a charity whose work she considers to be of paramount importance in today’s world.
New Media and Information Officer: Emma Brice
Emma joined the Trust in March 2011 and has the job of maintaining the website and writing the environmental news stories. She also promotes the Trust through social networking sites Twitter and Facebook. Growing up on a dairy farm in East Devon gave her a deep fondness for nature but it was time spent in South America, particularly volunteering and studying permaculture at Rio Muchacho Farm in Ecuador, which made her determined to use her working hours to help others care for the environment. She is proud to work for a charity that reaches out to over a 1 million children a year through free school talks and their website.
