New individual giving manager appointed for Canal & River Trust

26 January 2012

British Waterways has appointed Daniel Charles as its individual giving manager. Daniel joins head of fundraising, Ruth Ruderham, in building the giving strategy for the Canal & River Trust, the charity that will succeed British Waterways in England & Wales later this year.

Daniel is an experienced fundraising professional who was previously at Christian Aid for seven years. He has a wealth of individual giving experience and knowledge for both recruitment and retention. Daniel enjoys developing and innovating fundraising and as such was integral in launching Christian Aid’s growing fundraising programme, through the introduction of face to face, prospecting, as well as launching the organisations virtual giving catalogue and mobile recruitment programme.

Ruth Ruderham says: “I’m so pleased that Daniel has joined the team, his track record is excellent and I have no doubt that he can help me secure the funding that we think the waterways deserve. We’re working on one of the most exciting fundraising challenges out there at the moment so it’s a great time to be involved. Daniel will be developing a long-term individual giving programme which will form the foundation of our fundraising work in this area.”

Daniel says: “I am delighted to join British Waterways at the cusp of the transition to the Canal & River Trust. It’s a really exciting challenge to build up an individual giving strategy in what is completely new territory for the organisation. I’m looking forward to getting to know the network better and recruiting new supporters for this important cause.”

The Canal & River Trust will hold in trust for the nation 2,000 miles of canals and rivers, and the third largest estate of Listed structures in the country. Britain’s waterways also provide a unique haven for people and wildlife, offering distinctive local tranquillity to some 13 million visitors every year.
