An opportunity to 'Give Back' to our community

19 Oct 2016

Thirty-six members of staff had volunteered to act as mentors on a number of topics including IT, HR, marketing, social media, fund-raising, website-building and communications planning. Cordell Ray, CEO from County Community Projects (CCP), Margaret Firth from the Office for Civil Society, Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), and one of our Directors' General  welcomed the charities for what turned out to be a most productive and enjoyable afternoon. 

It was also a great opportunity for some of Gloucestershire’s smaller charities to network and discuss issues of mutual interest. This was the first time we have run an event of this nature, but feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and we hope that support will continue in the months to come.
