Rebecca started working with Legacy Link in 2022 as a Developing Consultant and brings her creative and communication skills to the role.

Rebecca graduated in 2005 with a 1st Class degree in Landscape Design and worked for various architects practices before specialising in designing playgrounds for Doncaster Council.

The arrival of her three children allowed her to embrace being a Mum full time. Finding time over the subsequent years to volunteer and work for her church, the local coffee shop, design the odd garden for friends and start many creative craft projects!

A relocation to Scotland in 2019 and her youngest child starting school sparked a desire to find a new career path flexible around family but equally rewarding. Delayed by COVID Rebecca finally started at Christian Aid as a Legacy Assistant helping reduce their backlog of cases moving on to oversee their Pecuniary cases. Following a recruitment drive Rebecca was then asked to train the new Legacy Officer.

She has since supported a variety of charities with short-term cover and her design and creative skills have been put to good use within the wider Legacy Futures Group.

In her spare time Rebecca loves to make ceramics in her pottery studio in the garden and walk Monty the Corgi in the beautiful Loch Ard forest where she lives.
