Bethan works for the French charity, Dons Solidaires. As Donor Relations manager she is responsable for encouraging manufacturers and distributors of non-food goods to donate, rather than destroy, their surplus stocks. Dons Solidaires receives product donations from well known companies and brands such as Procter & Gamble, Galeries Lafayette, L‘Occitane, L‘Oréal, Mattel and Disney – these products are then redistributed to people in need via a network of charities all over France. Prior to joining Dons Solidaires in 2009, firstly as a volunteer, Bethan spent over ten years in the food ingredients industry with the Irish based Kerry Group – various sales and key account management roles in the UK, Canada and France. The skills she acquired during this time are all put to good use in the charity sector – stock management, key account development, project management, prospection, reporting… Bethan is British with three children and a French husband!
