Meet The Funder event gives local organisations a boost

Community and voluntary groups from across the Selby District flocked to our Meet the Funder event held at Community House in a bid to gain help, advice and ultimately, the funding needed to make their organisation thrive. 
National funding organisations such as the Big Lottery Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund and UnLtd were joined at the event by regional funders such as the Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Two Ridings Community Foundation.IMG_0107.JPG
The event, hosted by Selby District AVS and sponsored by Selby District Council, allowed local groups to talk face-to-face with the funders in a relaxed environment, gaining advice and information about the funding available to them. It was also a great opportunity to network with local groups.
Tony Appleton, Chief Officer of Selby District AVS, said: “We were over the moon with the response we had from our Meet the Funder event. It was great to see well over a hundred people from various third sector organisations in the district walk through the doors of Community House and leave feeling happy and excited about the future. 
“We hope to host more Meet the Funder events in the future and continue to support charitable,
voluntary and community organisations in the Selby District.”
