Amy is the Corporate Fundraiser at Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity (ECHC) and has been involved in the third sector, both in the UK and overseas, for the last 10 years. Her role at ECHC over the last 4 years has seen her grow a wide network of business relationships across Edinburgh.
She is a fan of almost every sport, and outside work can be found consuming as much of it as possible; both live and on the TV/radio. Cricket, however, holds the highest place in her heart thanks to her Grandfather, who was a successful minor counties cricketer and a member of the MCC, and introduced her to the game as a young girl.
With very limited opportunities to enjoy playing cricket when she was growing up, Amy is especially pleased to be a trustee of Beyond Boundaries and see greater opportunities for women and girls to enjoy the wonderful game!
