We’re bursting at the seams with excitement at the launch of our new office with fundraising extraordinaire Elley Martin at the helm. We’ve joined forces to deliver a long-held, shared vision: to offer a complete fundraising agency service to every charity in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Scotland.

Here’s what Elley has to say about her new appointment:

It’s an absolute dream to be part of the Pebblebeach Team, developing hugely successful fundraising solutions for charities of all shapes and sizes. Having spent the last 16 years working and volunteering for charities across Northern Ireland and Scotland, I am deeply committed to helping futureproof fundraising for every charity possible at this most critical time. Whatever the challenge, we really can deliver an effective and affordable solution.

Pebblebeach North is based in Belfast and will be the launch pad from which we wish to reach every Scottish and Irish charity struggling in these unprecedented times. With key income streams still on hold, Individual Giving (IG) will be the engine behind successful fundraising in 2021. Outstanding IG fundraising can no longer be a postponed ambition, it’s what’s required, today, for survival.

This is where Elley and Pebblebeach come in – we really can help raise the money that’s going to be so desperately needed in 2021 (we raised nearly £2m for our clients last year!).

If you’re based in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland or Scotland, Elley would be delighted to discuss your charity’s situation (on Zoom, of course!) – and how Pebblebeach can help you bring in new, substantial income – quickly and effectively. This is completely free and without obligation. And, those wishing to learn more about an introductory, emergency-appeal offer are encouraged to get in touch.

Before we sign off, there’s no way we could get to the end without hearing from Ash Gilbert – so here’s what our Founder and Director had to say about our news:

Having known and worked with Elley over many years we are thrilled to welcome her into the Pebblebeach family. Together, I am certain that we will be able to provide a completely new level of support and service to charities across Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Scotland.
