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 cakes, writing for Huffington Post, or trying to bag all of Scotland’s 282 Munros.

Maree Brown, Fundraising & Volunteer Manager
Maree looks after fundraising and volunteers for OneKind and has been part of the team since March 2017. Maree previously worked in fundraising at the RSPB and as an events and marketing assistant. Maree says “I started following the work of OneKind in the summer of 2016, and quickly found that I loved the work they were doing for animal welfare in Scotland. I was delighted when I was offered the chance to become part of the team and work on issues that are close to me heart, such as puppy farms and tail docking”. Maree has a beagle called Millie who is one of the OneKind office dogs. Email Maree.Brown@onekind.org.
Zoya Patel, Fundraising & Communications Officer
Zoya moved to Scotland in June 2017, and one of the first things she did was sign up as a member of OneKind, to join a community of passionate animal welfare campaigners and activists. Since then, she has been excited to become part of the team to help grow OneKind’s impact for Scotland’s animals. Zoya has a Master of Communications, and has worked in senior communication roles in Australia for the past five years. She is also a writer, equestrian enthusiast, and PR manager/pamperer for her cat Bella, who has moved from Australia to Edinburgh with her. Email Zoya.Patel@onekind.org.
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.
