Before attending the University of Lincoln in the UK, Brian spent five months in Uganda volunteering for a small charity headquartered in his hometown of Coleraine, Northern Ireland. Captivated by the beauty of the country and the people (and by the sunshine!), he was determined to return – which he did, briefly, a few years later.
Following several years working for charities in both England and Scotland, Brian decided the time was right to return to Uganda on a more permanent basis and pursued a tantalising opportunity with POP.
Brian is responsible for the organisation’s fundraising and marketing activities, developing and promoting POP’s product range, ensuring that POP runs its projects in a financially sustainable and effective manner, and keeping donors and supporters up to date on our work.
