Tim Bissett joins the Christmas Appeal team

News St Martin – Talking Points

Monday 9 September 2013

Tim Bissett has joined the team at St Martin’s as our first Director of the Christmas Appeal.  Tim joins us from the Church Urban Fund where he was Chief Executive.

The BBC Radio 4 St Martin-in-the-Fields Christmas Appeal has experienced extraordinary growth in recent years.  Tim’s role is to maximise the fundraising potential of the Christmas Appeal and build St Martin’s reputation for serving some of the most vulnerable people in London and around the UK.  Tim comes to us with skills and experience in fundraising, partnership-building, financial and logistical oversight, grant-making, broadcasting, and community organising. He has a history of building effective organisations that speak to historic commitments and contemporary challenges.

Tim lives in Winchester with his wife Helena and has three children.  He is a cyclist and runner.  He will be running the 2014 London Marathon to raise money for The Connection.

Tim says ‘I’m thrilled to have joined the team at St Martin’s.  The Christmas Appeal is an extraordinary partnership between BBC Radio 4 and the community of St Martin in the Field’s which unlocks desperate situations for people across the UK.  I look forward to helping it to continue to flourish.’
