I'm Alana, I'm 39, from London, UK.  

 

Equality for all life is my abiding passion: for us humans, for all lives (we are all one planet, one 'people', no matter our species).

I worked in TV for almost 7 years then left to keep my promise to build a home (now ‘homes’) for life for disabled youngsters & adults in Swaziland.  (This is ongoing).

 

During Lock Down, I volunteered as admin support for Help Wildlife over summer 2020 & (observing a missed opportunity to help our UK wildlife) I have used my experience to launch & grow UK Wildlife Transporters, since August 2020.

 

Most of my adult life I’ve been developing a network in the 100s (or probably 1000s) across multiple industries to source advice, skills, information, help and funding for my non profit initiatives.

 

My skill set varies but as an example of some of my non profit fundraising efforts: I have organised & hosted live and online Q&As with actors like Richard E Grant & Jason Flemyng as well as incredible inspirations like Olympian Leon Taylor, Sir Rannulph Fiennes, Jools Holland, Richard Pierson (founder of Headspace) & Adventurers Mark Beaumont & Sean Conway.  These Q&As were also published via Kindle, in 'It Ain't Gospel.'

I'm working with an increasing number of ethical Partners/Sponsors (also founding a community of like-minded UK companies).
