Three cheers for community fundraising careers!
A big thank you to the Institute of Fundraising's Community Fundraising special interest group for inviting us to lead Thursday's (27th April) workshop on the career development options for community fundraisers, followed by some well-earned drinks at The Castle in Farringdon. We were delighted to help and hope you were able to pick up some useful advice from our fundraising specialists.
If you missed it you'll find a few of the tips over on our Twitter feed, which also happens to be a great way of catching the latest jobs as soon as they're posted.
...and raring to go! The start of May means the 2017 Harris Hill Charity Softball season is now officially underway, and as always we're beyond impressed with the sheer dedication of the countless charities involved - friendly (but fierce) practice matches galore already!
Thanks as ever to the ultra-efficient organising committee (including a big welcome to your new members!), and to our fellow sponsors Blue Step Solutions and Snap Print Management/RNB Group who have got some great things lined up for the summer.
