Members Workshop
West Midlands reached 300 Members last month!

The workshop will have funders attending such as Children in Need, Lloyds TSB Foundations etc presenting their funding streams and hopefully helping sported members to identify new opportunities.  Places will be limited, to book a place on the workshop, please email Sophie or call her on 07901339336.
