Matt is COCO's Fundraising Manager and leads COCO's exciting and varied fundraising projects. He joined COCO in 2019 after returning from his world record breaking circumnavigation of the globe on a scooter and sidecar, which raised money for lots of different modern slavery charities.

Matt uses his passion for organising quirky and different events to drive COCO's fundraising, which enables the charity's life changing international development work in East Africa. He showed his dedication from day one by completing the 2019 Great North Run in fancy dress as COCO's mascot George the Giraffe!

When Matt is not working at COCO or on his scooter and sidecar project, he can be found surfing and cycling around the North East coast or watching the football on tv. He loves adventure and exploration, but hates writing about himself in the third person.
