Our People – Claire Evins, Act for Peace

Claire Evins, Act for Peace

Claire Evins works in the Marketing and Campaigns (MAC) team of Act for Peace (AfP), on a part time basis, three day per week with regular giving and Gifts of Peace.  Initially drawn to the job because it was a church based charity, Claire says that she loves working here.  She finds her job very rewardingbecause the fast paced environment and high energy involved make her days unique. 

Claire says that her main priority is serving our supporters. “They are kindly giving to us to do work on their behalf. I want them to feel appreciated and let them know, through Peace Mails in particular, the amazing difference their gifts are making to those suffering due to conflict and disaster”. She asserts that receiving notes or letters from supporters, thanking AfP for their work, is a great source of encouragement.

Prior to working with AfP, Claire spent 10 years in brand marketing, promoting grocery products and snack food with unforgettable brand names, one of which was Tabasco. Claire confesses that consequently she loves the sauce and always has a bottle on her desk. She puts it on everything.

Who inspires Claire? This may change depending on the biography she is reading. Claire recently, read a biography of Condoleezza Rice and was impressed by her intelligence. Claire says “Condoleezza was raised by parents who put her education first and believed in her and she became US Secretary of State. I definitely recommend reading it.”

Outside of work hours, Claire is a volunteer through her Church, managing a mentoring program with a local public school. This involves 10 Church mentors who each have a student they support and comfort. Not all Claire’s attention is devoted to charitable works. Amongst all the activities on her schedule she still manages to attend every Cronulla Sharks football game, this included the victorious 2016 Grand Final. In the hallways of the Act for Peace office you can still hear her call “Up-Up Cronulla”.
