Edward Stannard

Commercial Committee

Fundraising and Sponsorship trustee; Member of the Commercial Committee


I have been involved with the Museum since 2013; first as volunteer driving engines, then as a trustee in 2014. Professionally I spent eight years in sales and business development roles in the corporate world before moving into the heritage sector full time in mid-2015. 


Since early 2016 I have been running the Giving to Heritage programme, one of the Heritage Lottery Fund Catalyst programmes, providing high-impact fundraising training and development to independent heritage organisations across England.


My remit as a trustee is to provide guidance and support when it comes to fundraising and income-generation, working closely with both the management team and the Commercial Committee.
