Karen Dawson

Head of Fundraising

Karen Dawson was proud to join the Painshill team in June 2019, as Head of Fundraising, inspired by the huge passion and dedication of our volunteers and everything that has been achieved by Painshill Park Trust. Her role, initially supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, is to help Painshill to become more sustainable. Karen has worked in the charity sector for 20 years, with various causes and brings experience of working with small and medium charities, and raising funds through a range of income streams.

Things to see & Do

Painshill is an award-winning 18th century landscape garden where you are invited to walk around a work of art. Winding paths will take you on a journey to discover a living canvas with beautiful vistas and dramatically placed garden buildings. Stroll around the Serpentine Lake, wander through woodland and promenade past follies, including the Ruined Abbey, Gothic Temple and Turkish Tent.
