Danielle Friend - Head of Finance

What's your role within the charity? Head of Finance

How long have you worked for Wiltshire Air Ambulance? Since August 2013

Tell us a little bit about your role: I hold the position at WAACT of Head of Finance, which means that I get involved from the level of donations being received right through to reporting on performance to the Trustees.

What do you love about your job? Everything! I feel that I can really make a difference within the Charity, despite not being frontline paramedic staff, I feel part of the team which is helping to save lives every day and to hear or read the heart felt stories tells all of us that we work for a magnificent Charity.  The people of Wiltshire are passionate about their service and that passion translates into fundraisers and volunteers giving up their time to raise money for such a worthy cause.  To be part of that energy and excitement is nothing short of a privilege. 

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself: I was in the CD:UK audience more times than I would like to admit, but did see all of the Spice Girls and met Ant and Dec, also saw 5ive perform for the very last time, my left arm featured heavily in one link…. Ant and Dec are REALLY small…..
