Fund Day, Bite Size Learning from South Norfolk Council

South Norfolk Council is organising a free workshop to help community groups find out what funding is available and give advice on how to make a successful application for money.

The Fund Day event, which has been arranged following requests for more information about how to fundraise for community initiatives, is being held on Saturday 9 March, between 9.30am and 1pm at Hempnall Village Hall.

The workshop forms part of the Council’s Pick ’N’ Mix Bite Size Learning sessions, which offer free help and advice to everyone with an interest in developing their skills to support community projects.

The Fund Day event will include speakers from funding bodies including: Adnams, Orbit Housing, Norfolk Community Foundation and the National Lottery Community Fund. They will offer information on the grants available, advice on how to make a successful application and advice on how to present your project.

Two local community groups will also be at the event to share their fund-raising experiences and the Council’s Communities Team will also be providing advice.
