She was the driving force behind Cards for Good Causes, where she was director from 1977 to 2000, and generated millions of pounds for charities in that role.  She was appointed non-executive director of ClickNow in 2006, a search engine for the charity sector.

In 1993 she was awarded the OBE and in 2006 she won the PF Lifetime Achievement Award.

Today she remains on the boards of 12 organisations including the British Red Cross international fundraising committee and the Winchester branch of Relate. In 2012 she became a trustee for the Charity Employees Benevolent Fund.

She was also a judge at the 2000 Charity Awards.
