Lucinda Frostick leaves next week and is due to be away until the end of April. The IoF has turned to Geronimo's voluntary sector team to provide senior-level advice in her absence.
Frostick said the comms department's two press officers had been handling all the IoF's press work in the past three months as part of the handover, and Geronimo's Peter Gilheany and Anastasia Scott would now be on hand to provide support.
Frostick joined the IoF two years ago.
Earlier this year the IoF launched an awareness drive to encourage the public to donate cash to charities via their wills (PRWeek, 31 March).
