About me.


Nikki Bell MinstF(cert)

You’re probably wondering who I am, and like a true fundraiser you’ve come to find out more.  Star move.

I began my fundraising career the same way many of us do, by accident.  I volunteered for a corporate community team, signed up for a trek across the Jordan desert (as you do), and 3 months and £3k later I was hooked.

I’ve been a telephone fundraiser, community fundraiser and eventually managed an in-house Face to Face team for St Oswald’s Hospice alongside their individual giving and telephone campaigns.

I joined the British Heart Foundation (BHF) in 2016 as their North East Fundraising Relationship Manager, specialising in volunteer and corporate fundraising and I’ve had a bloody brilliant time. I’m currently seconded to the role of Fundraising Brand Campaign Project Manager until spring 2018 working on a very exciting project…

I’m a newly recruited Toastmaster and will be be putting these skills to the test at the  2018 Yorkshire and Scottish IoF Conference where I’ll be delivering my session on finding and building brilliant community relationships.  Springsteen themed, of course.  Come along!

And on the subject of IoF conferences, I organise the North East Fundraising Conference and volunteer on the North East Institute of Fundraising Committee to bring training events to the North East.  If you have an amazing idea you’d like to share, I’d absolutely love to hear from you so hit me up via the ‘Get in Touch’ page or email me at nikki@charitynikki.blog.

I’m always game for a chat and the brews are on me.

Gan canny.
