Summer Series: Eleanor Mills, 21st July at 7.30pm
In the third of our Summer Series webinars, Eleanor Mills is in conversation with Laurence Guinness to discuss Beyond Compassion Fatigue. How to tell stories to maximise impact and preserve dignity in fundraising.
Eleanor joined The Sunday Times in 1998 as the youngest ever features editor, became editor of the Saturday edition of The Times in 2008, returning to The Sunday Times as associate editor and a columnist a year later. Editorial director since June 2012, she became editor of The Sunday Times Magazine in 2015. Under Eleanor editorship, the magazine won Supplement of the Year at the Press Awards for the first time in its history. She left the newspaper in March 2020 but remains Chair of Women in Journalism and makes regular TV appearances. In this webinar she will talk about the highlights of her career as a journalist (including her exclusive Theresa May interview), editor and campaigner against FGM, the ‘pornification’ of teens online, shining a light on poverty on the Broadwater Farm Estate and in Blackpool, and how to use story telling to raise funds and awareness for important causes.
We welcome donations to West London Action for Children, and suggest £10 per screen.

Eleanor will be in conversation with children’s charity campaigner and Chief Executive of The Childhood Trust, Laurence Guinness.
