It is a great feeling when a plan you have been working on comes together, flights booked to Manchester and Gift Aid workshop bookings and enquiries coming in thick and fast. Only 7 weeks to go now!!
Three years ago, I joined forces with Phil Robson of Giftease to bring good quality, practical and delegate led Gift Aid workshops to the South West of England. After three years running workshops, them gaining in popularity and with delegates travelling to Bristol and Exeter from as far afield as Blackpool and Derbyshire, I took the step of launching The Charity Knowledge Hub.
We are now rolling out our Gift Aid workshops across the country with Manchester (June) and London (October) planned for this year. We also have a Plymouth (July) and a Bristol (late October) workshop we are running in conjunction with the Institute of Fundriasing South West.
It is always a risk moving into a new area where you don’t know as many people (although I did work and live in the North West earlier in my career) so it is great to see so many people interesting in finding out about the workshop and booking on.
This is what I love about the charity sector – friendly and helpful people who want to share their knowledge and spread the word about good quality training
