Linzi Donald - Fundraising and Volunteer Coordinator

Linzi Donald

I joined the Epilepsy Scotland team as a Fundraising and Volunteer Coordinator in October 2018 having made the move to the West from Edinburgh Zoo. I wanted to join the team after seeing first hand some of the amazing work Epilepsy Scotland does!

Outside of work I enjoy travelling. I’ve been lucky enough to explore lots of countries and even lived in Australia for 3 years.

5 interesting facts…

Don’t tell anyone, but my guilty pleasure is…digging all the good bits out of the Ben & Jerrys tub and then putting it back for the next unsuspecting victim

You would never believe me if I told you I…once got to hand feed a kangaroo joey in its mothers’ pouch while living in Australia

When I was younger, I wanted to be…a cashier in ASDA or an A-list Hollywood celeb – it was a tough decision.

The best thing about working at Epilepsy Scotland is…getting to speak to people who are super enthusiastic about fundraising and raising awareness for us!

If I had a superpower, it would be…to be able to speak and understand every language in the world.
