National charity Breast Cancer Haven has today announced it has appointed Lindsey Cape as Fundraising Director.

Lindsey joins the charity from FareShare, where she has been the Head of Fundraising since September 2017. Under Lindsey’s leadership, FareShare gained a number of multi-year partnerships and voluntary income grew from £3.2m to £9.3m. Lindsey also oversaw The Daily Telegraph’s Christmas Appeal in 2018.

Lindsey has 12 years’ experience in the fundraising sector, having previously worked with Sparks Charity, Outward Bound Trust, and Kids. Prior to joining FareShare, Lindsey worked with Macmillan Cancer Support – first as a Fundraising Manager and then as an Area Fundraising Manager – where she was a member of the regional fundraising leadership team in London and the South East.

Lindsey said: “I’m delighted to be joining Breast Cancer Haven, which does fantastic work around the UK. Breast Cancer is the UK’s most common cancer and the work that Breast Cancer Haven does has never been more important. I’m looking forward to helping continue, and further build on, this vital work.”

Sally Hall, CEO of Breast Cancer Haven, said: “We’re delighted to have Lindsey join Breast Cancer Haven. Lindsey has a proven track record of driving fundraising growth, and significant experience working with cancer charities. We feel that she is the perfect addition to our team as we look to reach and support even more people affected by Breast Cancer.
