Voluntary arts groups across Cheshire West are being invited to attend a fundraising workshop on Saturday 9th February at Tarvin Community Centre.
Cheshire West Voluntary Arts Network is running the event with the support of Chester Voluntary Action and Cheshire West and Chester Council.
Cllr Louise Gittins commented: “Fundraising can be a daunting task, so I hope as many local organisations as possible can come along to what I’m sure will be both entertaining and informative plus a good opportunity to network.
“There will be a range of speakers sharing information to help and support organisations with their fundraising planning and applications.
“I’d like to thank the speakers from Cheshire Connect, Chester Voluntary Action and Chester Bach Singers for taking part.”
