An appeal has been set up to fund a memorial plaque for Redmond Mullin, one of the founders of the Institute of Fundraising, who died last year.
Mullin, who died of kidney failure late last year aged 70, was chair of the consultancy Redmond Mullin Associates and worked as a consultant to major organisations in all fields of not-for-profit activity in the UK.
He had also been director of the Charities Aid Foundation, vice-chair of the IoF, which he helped to found in 1983, and vice-chair of the Fundraisers’ Convention.
Giles Pegram, a fundraising consultant and former director of fundraising at the NSPCC who worked with Mullin on the charity’s Centenary and Full Stop appeals, said he was "a fantastic consultant with a brilliant mind".
Pegram said that soon after Mullin passed away, he and fellow fundraising consultants Judith Rich and Sandi Wilson decided to set up a collection in Mullin’s memory.
"We are aiming to raise between £2,000 and £3,000 towards a permanent memorial plaque, with the rest going towards training at the institute," he said.
The names of everyone who gives £25 or more to the collection will go on the plaque, which will be mounted in the reception area of the institute’s London office. Anyone who wants to give should write a cheque made out to the Institute of Fundraising and send it to Judith Rich at 1 Constable’s Gate, Winchester SO23 8GE.
