Eye research charity Fight for Sight has announced the appointment of two new directors to lead its marketing and fundraising functions, replacing a previous Director of Engagement role.

Ikram Dahman has taken on the role of Director of Income Generation and Sarah Campion has become Director of Communications and Marketing.

Ikram has nearly 20 years of fundraising experience in the charity sector and was most recently interim Head of Fundraising at Fight for Sight. She was previously a Fundraising Director at Bloodwise and Head of High Value Partnerships at Leonard Cheshire Disability and has worked for other high profile national charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, Breast Cancer Now and Sparks.

Sarah has worked in communications and marketing for the last twenty years across the voluntary and public sector. She was most recently Head of Communications and Marketing at Fight for Sight and prior to that was Head of England External Affairs at Macmillan Cancer Support. She has also worked for charities including Leonard Cheshire Disability and the Refugee Council.

Ikram said: "I'm thrilled to take up this role and am delighted to have joined as we embark on such an exciting period of growth and ambition. I look forward to better understanding the needs of our supporters and working with Sarah and the rest of the team to take our fundraising to the next level.”

Sarah said "I'm delighted to take on this role and I'm looking forward to working with Ikram and with colleagues across the organisation to have impact for people with sight loss. It's a really exciting time in eye research and we are on the cusp of so many breakthroughs - it's one of my priorities to reinvigorate our brand so that we can inspire supporters with the research that we fund."

Chief Executive Sherine Krause said; “After a rigorous interview process we were fortunate to find the right skills within the organisation to fill these two vital roles for Fight for Sight. Ikram and Sarah will form part of a leadership team that is focused on taking Fight for Sight into its next phase, making the case for eye research and the impact it can have for people with sight loss.”
