This month, Clara Boeker joined the St John Scotland headquarters team as the charity's new Development Officer.
Having previously worked for the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges Scotland, and volunteered with the Edinburgh and Lothian Regional Equality Council, Clara hails from Germany originally but studied in Edinburgh and is now settled in the city. Clara was also a judge on this year’s Climate Challenge Fund, which allocates over £10 million of government funds to projects tackling climate change. She also loves yoga, knitting and baking in her spare time!
Clara will be St John Scotland’s first dedicated fundraiser, working closely with Areas to grow donations through community fundraising, events and individual giving.
She said:"I am very excited to start working together with all the St John Scotland members and supporters, and getting to know this great community!"
