Welcoming two new members of staff to Living Paintings
November 21, 2017

Last week, we welcomed two new members of staff to the Living Paintings Team. Say hello to Alison and Rachel!


Hello, my name is Alison Lockyear and I joined Living Paintings in November 2017.

I live in Burghclere with my husband, daughter and cocker spaniel, Tara.

For many years I worked at a local sports and leisure club as rackets coordinator,  overseeing the running of the tennis programme, indoor tennis centre and teams.

I have recently provided administration support for Ignition Tennis, who deliver junior and adult coaching to many schools and clubs in the area.

I enjoy playing competitive tennis and love to walk in the beautiful countryside we are surrounded by.

I’m really enjoying meeting the library volunteers and looking forward to being a part of the Living Painting team.


Rachel, Living Paintings' Fundraising Manager


My name is Rachel and I am the new Fundraising Manager at Living Paintings.

I live in Basingstoke with my husband and little girl. I have worked in fundraising for nearly 10 years for a range of health and disability charities. Most recently I was at the Macular Society. As an avid reader myself, I am excited to raise funds so that more blind and visually impaired children and adults can experience Living Paintings’ unique books.

It will be a pleasure to meet the volunteers, donors and fundraisers that make Living Paintings’ work possible.
