A TOP music festival is appointing its first full-time fundraiser.
Rebecca Morton, 31, has moved from Bristol to take the job with the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival.
Her bosses hope she will hit the right note when she goes out on the money trail.
Ms Morton aims to build links with sponsors and businesses.
Her appointment comes after the festival won Arts Council cash to create the post.
This year's festival - which opens on Friday, November 19 - has more than 50 events.
Festival manager Alison Povey said: "We are extremely pleased to have been able to establish this role within the festival team. It has a specific responsibility to develop our funding and income generation, from a wide range of charities, foundations, private sector organisations and new commercial activities.
"We are confident that Rebecca will make a big difference."
Ms Morton joins from the Ashton Court Festival in Bristol, a `mini-Glastonbury' featuring music, dance, comedy and theatre which attracts more than 120,000 visitors each year.
