Groups from across the three areas came together to hear guest speakers from the Lottery, Institute of Fundraising, Hampshire & Isle of Wight Community Foundation, Action Hampshire and Chuffed.org who provided updates on latest funding streams, charities raising income through social enterprise and Crowdfunding.
Attending the day were nearly 80 people from 54 organisations including Parish and Town Council representatives all of whom who were able to network and enjoy a busy agenda.
Pat Dean from Andover Stroke Club said:
We enjoyed it and found that the information was interesting and informative, even though some of it was not applicable to Andover Stroke Club. It has given us plenty to think about. We particularly enjoyed the opportunity to network with groups we do not normally meet with.
Sarah, Jane Scarth House Romsey Cancer Support Centre said:
Some very positive ideas. Crowdfunding isn’t so scary after all
