Sarah Moyes, Campaigner and Press Officer
Sarah Moyes is the Campaigner and Press Officer at OneKind. Sarah started working for OneKind in November 2016, having previously worked as the Press Officer at the Edinburgh Playhouse, and for The Stand Comedy Club and Central FM. Sarah has always been passionate about animals, and joined OneKind so she could make a difference to the thousands of animals that are killed and persecuted in Scotland. She works on all OneKind’s campaigns, secures press coverage, runs the charity’s social media accounts, and can also be seen representing OneKind at various events. When she’s not in the office, Sarah can usually be found hunting down the latest vegan food, reviewing theatre shows, or out climbing Scotland’s Munros.

Sherry-Ann Sweeting, Events Co-ordinator
Sherry-Ann is the Events Co-ordinator at OneKind. She started working as a volunteer for OneKind in August 2016 having previously been the Marketing Manager at The Scottish Investment Trust PLC. Having always been committed to animals and feeling keenly the responsibility of humans towards them, Sherry-Ann was delighted at the opportunity to become directly involved with a charity that champions the welfare of animals in Scotland. She co-ordinates the one-off events organised by OneKind. Out of the office, Sherry-Ann rides horses, goes walking (preferably around, rather than up, hills) and does as much travelling as she can cram in. Email Sherry-Ann.Sweeting@onekind.org.
Lauren Semple, Fundraiser
Lauren is the Fundraiser at OneKind with 12 years’ experience in the sector. She has worked with OneKind for a number of years in different forms, raising money through their appeals and campaigns as a telephone fundraiser and has volunteered for them before starting this post. Prior to working with OneKind, Lauren was Director of fundraising agency, Karat Marketing, a key figure in raising over £750k for charities across the UK and is delighted to bring her experience and skills to the charity. She is a dedicated fundraiser, passionate about animals and their welfare. She looks after OneKind’s members, supporters and events and is also responsible for ensuring OneKind continues to grow its supporter base to give Scotland’s animals an even louder voice! Outside of work, Lauren can be found climbing munros, watching Spanish films, drawing, travelling or chilling out with her cat.

Sarah Mackenzie, Volunteer and Events Officer
Sarah Mackenzie is the Volunteer and Events Officer at OneKind. She previously worked for one of the UK’s leading fashion retailers heading up the North’s charity and marketing events. She also works as a freelance marketing professional and travel writer, covering assignments for some of Scotland’s prestigious attractions and hotels.
Sarah started her journey with OneKind by volunteering in our office, helping to build our online shop. Alongside campaigning for animal rights since the age of 9, her love for meeting new people and engaging with the public soon saw her heading out to volunteer at the OneKind face-to-face events. She officially joined the OneKind team in July 2018, excited to recognise and grow OneKind’s volunteer base in order to help end animal cruelty in her home country, Scotland.
Outside of the office, Sarah can be found working on her own vegan travel website. Her love of animals and environmental welfare means that she regularly documents projects and interest stories covering these topics across the globe.
