Gideon Heugh

Gideon is a copywriter in the Global Brand and Communications team. When he's not wrestling with the muse / his keyboard, you will often find him traipsing up a mountain or burying his head in a book.

He came to work at Tearfund after stints in the wine industry (which was as fun as it sounds) and the NHS. He's also qualified as a Personal Trainer and a Rugby Union Referee. As well as writing for Tearfund, Gideon likes to dabble in poetry and is currently working on a novel.
