Pauline Macmillan will join the agricultural charity.
Scottish agricultural charity RSABI has announced the appointment of Pauline Macmillan as its new head of fundraising.
Pauline joins RSABI after a decade working at Macmillan Cancer Support as senior fundraising manager.
She brings a wealth of experience gained in the Macmillan role, where she was responsible for a large geographical area and managed multiple fundraising initiatives, winning an award in recognition of her dedication and determination.
RSABI provides financial, practical, and emotional support to people involved in Scottish agriculture and, with its workload steadily increasing, the new role will be vital to help ensure RSABI has the income needed to meet expected demand in the coming years.
Pauline said she was delighted to have joined the inspirational team at RSABI, with a priority for her team being continuing the growth of the charity’s Supporters’ Scheme which provides a vital source of annual income.
She said: “I’m looking forward to playing a part in the great work the charity does to support people in Scottish agriculture. This is an important time for fundraising, and I’m really enjoying getting to know the Scottish agricultural community and meeting many of the amazing people who are very kindly raising funds to support the work RSABI does.”
Pauline will lead the fundraising team at RSABI, including Margo Wills, fundraising executive, and Gregor Wilson, who has recently joined as communications, marketing and events executive.
Carol McLaren, chief executive of RSABI, said the charity was delighted to have Pauline on board.
She said: “This is an incredibly important time for the work of RSABI, with a period of change on the horizon for Scottish agriculture and many farmers and crofters struggling with increased input costs.
“One of the great strengths of the charity is the support it receives from the Scottish agricultural industry and it is vital we make the most of this valuable support so that we can continue to deliver strongly for those in our industry who need our help to get them back on track.”
