Free training event for charities


A free event is being offered to charities in the region who need help to secure funding.

Cornwall Community Accountancy Services (CCAS) is hosting a free virtual training session on Thursday December 10 to help non-profit organisations to understand more about the grant writing process.

CCAS will be working with Helen Mulhern from Eventy Marketing – a fundraising professional with 20 years’ experience in the sector, to bring this event alongside a Q&A session.

During the Zoom training session, attendees will learn more about trusts – what they are and how they award funding and the documentation that an organisation needs to have in place before approaching a trust – with a particular focus on the accounting information needed.

CCAS director Debbie Risborough explained: “In these times, one of the biggest problems facing charitable organisations is that of funding in order to keep going both now and in the future.  Many organisations would prefer to be working on their core activities rather than take time away from those to carry out a funding search.

“We are hoping to give people some core things to take away to make that process easier and more time effective.  We are delighted to be working with Helen Mulhern, who has many years of success within trust fundraising and will be able to share her experience.”

The event has been made possible due to funding by The National Lottery Community Fund.

Those who would like to attend the event can register their interest now by emailing
