Sam has worked in fundraising and the arts & cultural sector for over 20 years. Previously working as Head of Development for Lakeland Arts (a leading arts & heritage organisation in the North West), Sam led fundraising initiatives across their portfolio of cultural venues, including Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Blackwell The Arts & Crafts House, and Windermere Jetty: Museum of Boats Steams & Stories. Sam has experience of both sides of the grant funding process, having also worked for the National Lottery Heritage Fund, in both grants and development teams.
Alongside her part-time role with DanceSyndrome, Sam supports a range of cultural and third-sector organisations as a fundraising consultant. With all four of Sam’s children having a passion for dancing, she has developed an honest love and appreciation for dance, and a strong understanding of the tremendous benefits it can have. Sam is inspired by DanceSyndrome and is delighted to be joining the organisation at such an exciting time in its journey. Back to About Us
