Rosie Thompson MBE

Head of Events

Rosie has been our Head of Events since 1998 and during that time has met many thousands of veterans – all of whom inspire her. Rosie’s passions are any outdoors activity – except sailing! She has a real love of animals, especially her beloved cocker spaniel, Bridie. When not working – which is rare – she is busy raising money in a variety of ways for The Not Forgotten.

She has completed 24 marathons, many half marathons and several long distance challenges. In 2017 she fulfilled a long-held ambition to successfully complete the Marathon Des Sables “The Toughest Footrace on Earth” and is now the proud owner of a much treasured medal.

Ian Brand

Grants Officer

Having worked at the MoD for 3 decades, Ian lived in Croatia for a couple of years before returning to the UK and joining The Not Forgotten. His main role as Grants Officer is the vital task of generating the income needed for our events, by applying to civilian and military organisations for funding.

Now residing in a small village in Northern Lincolnshire, Ian spends his free time enjoying the great outdoors – be it walking, running or cycling and avidly following any cricket he can find.

Karlie Smith

Office Manager

Karlie joined The Not Forgotten in 2019 with 12 years’ experience in the charity sector, where she has fine tuned her office management skills. Karlie is responsible for making sure our office runs smoothly, covering everything from the database to making sure we have enough ink in the printer. Karlie is often the friendly voice on the other end of the phone when you give us a call to discuss your registration with the charity, and ensures that your details are up to date for any events that you may be attending.

Having grown up in Cyprus, Karlie moved to London aged 24 and now lives in south east London, where she loves walking, reading, swimming and spending time with her two grown up sons.
