Gloucestershire charity appoints new Corporate Partnerships Manager

Chris Knight has become the new Corporate Partnerships Manager for county charity, Longfield.

Chris previously worked for Caring for Communities and People (CCP).

Based at Minchinhampton, Longfield is a charity which provides support to adults in Gloucestershire who are affected by life-limiting illness, whether as a patient, a carer or having been bereaved.

Chris said: "After nearly seven years working at Caring for Communities and People it is time for a new challenge although I have absolutely loved my time with CCP.

"I've learnt so many new skills and developed some amazing business relationships which have been an incredible support for CCP not only financially but also supporting some of the events and appeals I managed.

"I'm looking forward to my new role with Longfield as their Corporate Partnerships Manager.

"I'm really excited about getting out and about meeting businesses across the county to spread the word of the work we do at Longfield and hopefully growing our supporter base to support the services we deliver for people who have been affected by a life limiting illness in the county".

More than 85 percent of the charity's income comes from the general public, through 18 shops and a wide range of fundraising activities.
