Pauline Broomhead, CEO at the FSI explained:

“Our Trends research shows that small charities are busier than ever. We hope that by running this lunchtime Twitter Q&A we are able to share our fundraising knowledge with those who might not have time to attend .

“We want to support small, local charities on Local Charities Day so we are encouraging them to send in questions for our experts to answer.”

The FSI is also running 20 free webinars about fundraising on Local Charities Day. They take place before work, at lunchtime and after work.

Rob Wilson MP, the Minister for Civil Society said:

“Local Charities Day on December 16 will give us all a chance to celebrate the fantastic work being done by small, local charities across the whole country. Their dedication and hard work deserves to be recognised and I hope people everywhere show their support both in the lead up and on the day.”
