When I first arrived, it was just a job like any other, but it soon struck me that what we do here changes lives. The difference that the donations we handle make to the lives of disadvantaged people is incredible. I know that we are making a difference and that’s the reason I’ve stayed all this time.

I’ve been a freemason for many years but had to retire some years ago because of my mobility. Following an operation to replace my knees, I contracted sepsis and I ended up having four emergency operations. The sepsis damaged my heart and I nearly died twice.

I’m always very humbled by the amount of money that is raised by our donors – I think it’s quite remarkable. The responsibility that we have to ensure that we are spending their money correctly is huge, but I really enjoy researching different charities and informing the successful charities from their applications.

I come from a strong masonic family – my father and uncles were all keen freemasons. When the job came up it was advertised throughout the provinces, including my dad’s, which was North Wales. So I travelled down to the bright lights of London and was taken under the wing of the RMTGB!

One day I saw an advert for Age Concern Oxford. I looked at it and thought, that’s exactly who I want to work with. My first proper paid job was with Age Concern Westminster so I’ve been working on and off for Age Concern or Age UK for nearly 30 years now.

David

My father was a freemason and he always wanted me to join but I resisted for a long time. The more he asked the more I resisted, until unfortunately he passed away. Later when I was asked by a work colleague if I would like to join, I did – partly in memory of my dad.

Harriet

I started working for the MCF straight after university. I had volunteered for a few charities while I was studying and realised that the charity sector was the right career path for me. I initially worked part time on the enquiries team but over time I discovered that my skills were better suited to supporting the MCF from behind the scenes, and I'm now a full-time marketing executive.
