Emily Findlay

COMMUNITY FUNDRAISING OFFICER.

Emily is here to help and encourage anyone and everyone who wants to fundraise to support Archie and appreciates more than most just how important Archie’s work is.

Between the ages 14 and 22, Emily spent much of her time in Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital, 250 miles away from her family home in Orkney. She was diagnosed with a rare form of childhood cancer, Neuroblastoma, and as such grew to know The Archie Foundation really well whilst her family stayed in their Family Accommodation.

Emily became an ‘Archie Ambassador’ and went on to raise thousands for Archie and other charities close to her heart.

In 2016, Emily made Aberdeen her home when she was accepted to study Events Management. She graduated from Robert Gordon University summer 2019 with her Bachelors degree despite two relapses during her further education. Among all this she also received a BEM from the Queen herself for services to child cancer awareness and fundraising in the North of Scotland!

Emily is the key Archie contact in Grampian for members of the general public, schools, volunteers, community groups, patients, and our NHS colleagues.

“Due to experience I more than most know the difference Archie makes to children & families and it makes me incredibly proud to be a part of that. I love the fact that no two days of my job are ever the same.”
