Dunmore takes BBC charity role

Stephen Dunmore has been appointed chair of the BBC's charity appeals advisory committee.


Dunmore, who was chief executive of the Big Lottery Fund until this year, replaces Stuart Etherington, chief executive of the NCVO, whose five-year term has finished.

The committee consists of 15 independent experts from outside the BBC with knowledge of the charity sector.

It advises the BBC on policies for charity appeals as well as giving its opinion on specific BBC appeals, such as Children in Need, Comic Relief's Red Nose Day and the Blue Peter appeal. BBC audiences raise £70m each year for charities.

Dunmore, who also chairs the charity National Family Mediation, said he wanted to "help ensure that the BBC's charity appeals continue to deliver real benefits for communities".

His appointment is for three years and can be renewed for a further two years by mutual agreement.
