Carly joined City of Trees in March 2020 as Fundraising and Corporate Partnerships Manager. She has worked in fundraising since 2007 with a particular focus on philanthropy and corporate partnerships. She started her career fundraising for research and scholarships at universities before moving on to fundraising for health charities such as The Stroke Association and The Migraine Trust.
Carly's passion is travel, she has been to 23 countries so far and plans to see much more of the world! Her favourite tree in the world is the Magnolia tree - there was one outside her flat in Rochester, Kent and she loved to see how it changed throughout the year and was home to many insects and birds. It looked so beautiful when it flowered in springtime.
