Through managing the Fundraising and Communications team, Sue helps Small Woods raise additional income and, through our communications, ensures that we are best serving our members and supporters. She has great empathy with the aims and ideals of Small Woods and simply loves the overall ethos.
Sue has always worked in the charity sector, principally in income generation - fundraising via trusts and foundations, individual giving through single or regular donations and legacies, corporate sponsorship and events and appeals. She has also managed commercial activities such as charity shop operations, cafes and gift shops and lottery operations, including their marketing and communications functions.
She lives near the Green Wood Centre in Ironbridge and appreciates being surrounded by nature. She lives on, and sometimes during floods, almost in, the River Severn. Her favourite tree is the willow as she greatly appreciates its assistance in stabilising the riverbank.
Emma has worked in the third sector for the past 17 years, in a range of settings from homelessness prevention to substance misuse. She spent three years as a communications manager for a mental health charity before joining Small Woods in September 2021. Her main role is supporting the communications team, whilst raising and maintaining the profile of the organisation. She ensures that approaches to communication are effective and consistent, including leading on branding, communication strategy and marketing. She is also a freelance photographer and is working on updating and expanding the image library.

Miriam (Mim) is our graphic design lead, working with I-Cheng to produce our quarterly magazine, Smallwoods, as well as producing our publicity materials, from event posters to course brochures. She is also working on updating our website.
