Hazel Robinson

I'm Hazel. I have a background in the arts having studied Drama, Theatre & Media at Glamorgan University. I've over ten years’ experience working in fundraising for a variety of charities including Wales' leading arts centre Wales Millennium Centre, and homelessness charity The Wallich. I believe the work that TVO do in giving people a platform for their voices to be heard, to really own their stories, is so important and truly empowers people to make personal and often life changing, positive changes. I am proud to be a Trustee of such an inspirational charity.
