    What our client says

    It’s always helpful to hear what other people think, so here is a selection of quotes and comments from clients and organisations that have worked with Richard:
    “We worked with Richard in 2021 to extract his knowledge and his wealth of experience in Legacy Fundraising.  Whilst our charity benefits greatly from gifts in Will’s we were at a stand still with activity and needed help to develop a strategy that would see us encourage people to pledge their support to us in their Will and connect and steward those existing pledgers that already gave us their support.  Unsurprisingly, Richard approached our project with enthusiasm, passion and real skill.  He grasped our brief quickly, understood our position and internal quirks and was able to adapt his strategy to meet our needs and expectations providing long term vision and short term tactical wins.  It’s always a pleasure working with Richard, but the real treat is his abundance of experience and knowledge in the Legacy sector, for us there was no one else that could get us to where we are now”
    - Louise Stirton, Senior Fundraising Manager – National Trust for Scotland
    Thank you for all your support Richard over the years. You do such brilliant work. I don’t think I have ever met someone as inspiring, knowledgeable and motivated about their subject matter. You are definitely the Fundraising master mind winner of all time. The team adore you- and what a great team they are.
