The team at LoveBrum are passionate about delivering real change in Birmingham, and are the glue that holds the LoveBrum family together. Our small team at LoveBrum HQ each bring their own unique skills and drive to keep the charity running smoothly. Every person has their own part to play in making sure our causes are supported, you get the most out of your  membership, our fundraisers are supported, our events run smoothly and much more…

Find out why Kathryn, loves Brum…

What’s your name, background and where are you based?

I’m Kathryn Simkiss, PA to the Executive Director at LoveBrum. I also deal with the general admin for the charity and, should you have any queries, I am normally one of the first people you will speak to! When I am not at work, I am at home with my two daughters!

Why do you love Brum?

Birmingham is a great city! I was born and raised here and I am proud to call it home – it’s great to be raising my own children here too. It is amazing to see how Brum is continually being rejuvenated and developed, yet we still have so much history to offer!

With so much to see and do here, it’s clear to see why we are the second city!

Why do you enjoy working for LoveBrum?

LoveBrum is such a special thing to be a part of – I feel very privileged to be a part of the LoveBrum family! I have been with the charity since spring 2016, and have loved seeing how we have continued to grow each year, and been able to support so many people. In my job, I am extremely proud to work alongside some amazing people who all share the same goal – to help build a better Brum!

Along the way, I have met some truly wonderful causes, and there is no better feeling than being able to help!

What projects are you passionate about?

All of the projects that we showcase are so special and unique in their own way, and they are all very deserving of the support and funding that LoveBrum can offer! If I had to give a definite answer, being a mother of two , I would say projects that support children are very close to my heart!
