Donna Yay

Senior Programme & Learning Manager

Donna came to LCF after living in Malaysia for 2 years. Whilst there she worked in a school managing their student volunteering, and before that she coordinated the flagship music education grant programme run by Youth Music. Donna has a great passion for the arts and has also worked in supporting small BME arts groups for Merton Council.


Donna is LCF’s Senior Programme & Learning Manager. This means that she manages many grant programmes. She also helps to use the information we collect from the groups we fund to help LCF learn more about the issues we are tackling across London. She helps the groups to improve their own learning too.

We love London

Donna’s favourite thing to do in London is to wander along the Southbank in the summer. She’s also quite fond of the V&A museum and eating sushi.
