Join us for the Sole Fundraisers Special Interest Group. This month we will be joined by Sophie Burt Head of Fundraising for the Children's Liver Disease Foundation and she will be kindly sharing the benefit of her wealth of experience and in particular talking about how to develop relationships with businesses at a local/regional level. Hopefully a popular topic and we can all learn lots!

These group meet-ups will enable you to meet up with other fundraisers in the same boat, to share thoughts and ideas and to support each other.

The event will be held monthly on the last Thursday of the month.

These meetings enable lots of information to be exchanged, proving really quite interesting with lovely people, all offering each other supportive advice.


Fi Harrison, a member of the Institute of Fundraising West Midlands and Sole Fundraisers Committee will lead the sessions. Fi is a freelance sole fundraiser herself so has encountered many of the issues that sole fundraisers face.

The events are intended to be quite informal and will be led by what attendees on the day would like to focus on. The aim is to support each other and for us to share resources and information to help us all work more effectively in our roles.

Please register in advance – places are limited.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Fi at:
