Ruth Paley – Fundraising Officer
My name is Ruth and I joined Living Paintings in January as the Fundraising Officer.
I live in Newbury and have 3 children and a whippet, who all keep me very busy. My background is in publishing. I previously worked for an audiobook publisher, and before this I was a freelance editor. I also write walking books for Berkshire, Oxfordshire and the Chilterns.
I am very much looking forward to meeting the Volunteers at Living Paintings and finding out how you all contribute to the wonderful work we do here.
Victoria Carter – Publishing Assistant
My name is Victoria Carter and I started here at Living Paintings in January this year as Publishing Assistant. With a background in communications, I’ve previously worked as a freelance, and online copywriter and account manager for major retailers including Tesco. Situated in the media publishing arm of the organisation, I produced marketing copy and managed the production of images for the website. Here at Living Paintings, I’ll be looking after the day-to-day running of the production room, helping to ensure the volunteers have everything they need to make our fantastic Touch-to-See books, and providing support to the busy publishing department.
