Laura Horan - Fundraising & Marketing Officer
Laura joined Make-A-Wish as a Fundraising & Marketing Officer in June 2021 to cover maternity leave within the organisation.
She has a BA in Journalism from DCU and has over 5 years’ experience working in PR, marketing, events and fundraising. Laura has particular experience working in community and digital fundraising and on small to large scale campaigns within the charity sector.
She believes fundraising is fundamental to changing lives! If you don’t have the money to support change, you might have the time to do so. Her fundraising career was inspired by her own childhood when she was tackling homelessness and struggling to access education. She received a lot of help from charities when she needed it most. She is glad to be able help other children and families while sharing her story along the way.
In her spare time Laura fosters cats and kittens, loves to cycle along the coast and is patiently waiting for festivals to return!
