Chuffed, a national Crowdfunding organisation ran a workshop for charities and community groups on behalf of Unity recently. The Rothsay Grange Home hosted the event free of charge for the community and 18 organisations from Romsey/Andover and a major housing provider from Basingstoke, attended to find out how their organisations could benefit from using the crowdfunding platform to raise funds through their own networks.
A lively, interactive morning took place with a range of groups including NHS Army Welfare, MIND, Friend of the Family, Chat Together and Jane Scarth House. Practical tips were provided on subjects specific to each such seeking funding for example, Rescue Dogs finding young adults suffering mental health breakdown or support for ex service users to attend events to help support their recovery.
Christianne Ireland, Unity Voluntary Sector Support Manager said, “This was the best workshop I have ever been to and the feedback from the other participants has been excellent. Thanks must go to Carl from Crowdfunding who was a natural communicator and had a way of bringing everyone with him. What a fantastic morning.”
