Campaign to Protect Rural England appoints new fundraising director

26 June 2017

The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) has appointed Elvira Meucci-Lyons as its new director of fundraising. 

Elvira has headed campaigning and fundraising teams for several major UK charities. She has led the retention and development team at Shelter UK, and spent 11 years handling marketing campaigns, community fundraising and outreach programmes for the Dogs Trust. Elvira was most recently director of fundraising at domestic violence charity Refuge.

On her appointment, Elvira said:

“I’m so pleased to be joining CPRE at such a key time for the charity and for the fundraising sector as a whole. How we fund and communicate our work to supporters in the current climate is more important than ever. I’m really excited at the prospect of creating ambitious and cutting edge plans to help increase our income.”

CPRE chair Su Sayer said:

“Elvira joins us at an exciting time for CPRE. As the Government prepares to navigate Britain's departure from the EU there will be many challenges for those who want to protect England's beautiful countryside. Elvira has a wealth of fundraising expertise and we look forward to the contribution she will make to our campaigns.”
