John is passionate about communities and brings that passion to his role at the RNLI, an organisation which is deeply rooted in communities around the UK and Ireland.
The RNLI’s approach to funding centres on four sources; legacies, fundraising, commercial activities and investments. John leads the work on fundraising and legacies.
