Rebecca Palmer - Trustee

Originally from Oxfordshire, I moved to Watford in 2010. I studied Classics at Royal Holloway, University of London and have an MA in African Studies from the University of Birmingham.

I have been working in the charitable and voluntary sector for over 15 years employed by both local and national Christian charities. I achieved my Institute of Fundraising Certificate in 2011. I am currently the Fundraising and Communications Manager at New Hope and am a member of Wellspring Church (North Bushey). I am passionate about the local church serving the community and I've been a trustee of the Chaplaincy since 2015. I'm also involved with CANB (Community Association North Bushey).

 In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband, Tim, and our two young children, as well as swimming, reading, and writing about issues of social justice on my blog.
