Philippa Bagnall joined the HFA team as Fundraising Co-ordinator in January 2015.
This is a busy role, with responsibility for managing the HFA fundraising and member database and assisting Natashia and the team at HFA with their fundraising activities.
Philippa brings valuable experience to the role, not only in fundraising, but also in health promotion and awareness. Previously she held the position of Fundraising Manager for SIDS and Kids NSW, and was responsible for running all their fundraising activities, including Red Nose Day.
“Events such as these are essential in not only providing vital funding resources, but also allow for greater awareness, education and understanding throughout the community,” said Philippa. She is looking forward to being part of HFA’s awareness raising activities, including Haemophilia Awareness Week and Red Cake Day.
Outside of work, Philippa has a very active life, and enjoys walking, reading and swimming. “But at the moment, most of my spare time is taken up with raising a 7 year old daughter and training a Labrador puppy,” she commented.
Her new role at HFA is a welcome way to work in a sector she loves.
“It’s a great opportunity, and I am enjoying learning more about the bleeding disorders community and using my experience at HFA.”
