About Me

I am a fundraiser that supports churches, charities and ministries to raise money for their projects. I do this through the fundraising consultancy I run – Chell Perkins Ltd ( We have been operating for six years and have raised £17 million for our clients, 70% of which are small churches or ministries.

Outside of work I am a trustee for 4Front Theatre, a Sunday School teacher, and Secretary for Fundraisers in Christian Organisations (a voluntary support group run by the Chartered Institute of Fundraising for churches and ministries).
