Ollie Thomas

Fundraising Manager

I Joined the fundraising world back in 2016, and since then I've never looked back. Being one of the longest-serving members of staff here at SMILE, I've seen the company grow along with my own. I currently hold several records for the company, including the most raised for charity in a week and the most raised in a day. I also hold the record for the most overall raised by an individual working for SMILE, which sits at over 1.3 million pounds.

I quickly progressed through management-run regions in both Newcastle and Middlesbrough. In this time, I have met some amazing people and look forward to continuing to do so as the years go by.

Away from work, I enjoy two things. Golf being one of them, and spending time with my beautiful family.
