Winchester Funding Fayre 2023
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Winchester Funding Fayre!
How good it was to have representatives from the charity, voluntary and community sector all together under one roof at Winchester Vineyard Church, to look at funding and fundraising.
The Winchester Funding Fayre organised by us here at Community First and supported by Winchester City Council.
Delegates were treated to five different speakers from national (National Lottery and Heritage Lottery), regional Hampshire & IoW Community Foundation and Hampshire County Council) and local (Winchester City Council), each of whom outlined what funding they currently have to offer and answered questions from the floor.
“This was an amazing opportunity to meet Funders and provided great inspiration and motivation to move forward with our Funding plans”
“I learned a lot – am determined to make more funding bids now!”
“Really enjoyed today, and came away with concrete ideas for fundraising. It was great to talk in person to potential funders, which will give me the confidence to move forward on making a few funding bids.”
“It was really helpful to hear from each funding body rep about what they’re really looking for in applications – the insight that you don’t get just from reading their guidance information”
“Fab day out! Loved the afternoon workshop sessions and information they gave me. Well done to the team at CF”
“A useful mix of introductions to potential grant makers, networking and practical tips. Very well organised.”
