Matt Hickey

Events & Community Fundraising Manager

Matt is the Events and Community Fundraising Manager at the Mental Health Foundation. He manages our challenge events fundraising programme, including the London Marathon, and oversees our flagship fundraiser, Tea & Talk.

After graduating from the University of the West of England with a degree in Sports Business Management, Matt volunteered with a local charity in Berkshire called Sport in Mind which promotes mental wellbeing through playing sport. He then spent four months at Mind, where he completed a Fundraising Internship. In November 2015 he became Events and Community Executive at the Mental Health Foundation before becoming Events and Community Fundraising Manager two years later.

To look after his mental health Matt loves to watch Manchester United, where he is a season ticket holder, travel, listen to music, go to church and spend time with friends.
