Emma Newell

Claire House Children’s Hospice

“As the sole legacy fundraiser at our charity, it is really important for me to learn as much as I can about legacy administration, to help us with our day to work.

Studying alongside my day-to-day role at Claire House, gives a great balance of both practical and theory. It is really helping me to understand the everyday aspects of legacy administration.

I am extremely grateful for this opportunity to further my learning.”
