Who we are Meet the team Our team Lorraine Hawthorne Following my own breast cancer diagnosis and treatment in 2018 I wanted to give something back to this amazing charity which helped myself and my family. I joined the Grants & Partnerships team originally as a volunteer in January 2019 supporting their needs. Prior to this I ran a successful commercial cleaning company which was no longer conducive with a healthy recovery but did give me knowledge of bid and tender writing. I became an employee in March 2019 working with funders and business organisations to further support FACT in delivering their services. I'm proud to be a member off the FACT team and the FACT family.
