For the past 3 years, Zoë Bunter has led the fundraising team at this Christian international development charity, based in Peterborough. The Leprosy Mission is a medium-sized NGO, raising around £7m per annum to support leprosy-affected people in Africa and Asia.
Zoë has been a fundraising professional for 16 years in a range of secular and faith-based charities. In 2015 she led the Leprosy Mission through the most successful fundraising campaign in its history. The Feet First campaign was awarded UK Aid Match funding and in total raised £2.3m. As a result, in 2016 the Leprosy Mission was shortlisted for two national fundraising awards.
Zoë is a lively and engaging speaker. In summer 2016 she spoke at the national Greenbelt Festival about fundraising as a spiritual calling, sharing the platform with fundraisers from Christian Aid and the Childrens Society. She is passionate about fundraising and about loving the donor, as we engage them in a relationship of giving and receiving. Zoë is a member of the Advisory Panel of Rogare – the Fundraising Think Tank, based at the University of Plymouth.
