Funding for All’s ever popular Kent & Medway Funding Fair was back again during October 2017, and this time we visited the district of Canterbury. Hosted at The Community College Whitstable, the day offered delegates fundraising seminars and one-to-one mentoring along with the chance to meet those from leading trusts and foundations in the exhibition Marketplace.
Not only is this event of great help to attendees seeking support to develop new projects and work in their communities, but the networking you afford between all manner of organisations (covering such diverse interests) is pretty much without parallel in this county.

Alongside leading national and local grant-makers (including BBC Children in Need, Big Lottery Fund, Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust, Heritage Lottery Fund and Kent Community Foundation), the Marketplace saw Kent organisations exhibit their services and display their wares.

We had a fantastic time at the fair and it was very useful to us. It has made me revisit my business plan and realise that a couple of our aims that we thought were unachievable, could become a reality with a little bit of help.
