Exciting times at Noah’s Ark

Jay Hunt joined Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice at the beginning of January as Head of Community Engagement.

Jay Hunt joined Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice at the beginning of January as Head of Community Engagement. In this new role he will be working with the fundraising team and partner organisations on their Building the Ark Appeal.

Jay will be working with colleagues to plan a programme of events that will give the appeal real impact. This could range from mass participation events to sporting challenges and from gala dinners to engagement with schools.

“It’s an exciting time to be joining Noah’s Ark,” he said. “There’s lots going on and everyone is very passionate about the cause.

“North and central London needs a children’s hospice building; there are 1,169 children and young people in our areas who require our support, so the demand is there.

“I’m looking forward to getting my teeth into the launch of the appeal, getting some activities going and seeing the funds being raised.”

For Jay the challenge will be to reach new audiences who haven’t previously supported Noah’s Ark. “It’s about bringing people on board who’ll keep supporting us into the future, to maintain and run the hospice. How we differentiate ourselves in what’s already incredibly busy charity sector will be crucial.”

Jay joins Noah’s Ark from Muswell Hill-based charity Ambitious about Autism where, as head of events and community, he organised fundraising challenges including a gruelling London to Manchester bike ride, which he completed in 16 hours.

So why Noah’s Ark? “I saw a quote which said Noah’s Ark is about giving children the chance to be children rather than patients, which I think is strong and I wanted to be part of Building the Ark. I have two young children and if they were in the situation of having a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, I can imagine the need for that support as a family.

“It was nice to have met one of the parents we’ve supported – it was really interesting to hear her and understand her passion for the charity; the fact that she really sees Noah’s Ark as a family, and it does feel like a family. Everyone I meet, whether supporters or partners such as Spurs, really gets the organisation and wants to support what we do, which is great. “
