With our fingers on the Twitter pulse, here are some new and old tweets for fundraisers full of inspiration, humour and opportunities.
1. Bright spark charity shop
A Cardiff cat charity shop mistakenly sold the tools of an electrician that was fixing the shop’s lighting. He was helping them for free, and just walked outside to get something from his van. In that time, the shop sold his tools, worth £200, for £1.

3. Talkin’ ’bout your generation?
Third Sector’s new award recognises the best of fundraisers who are new to the sector. They can be any age, but must not have worked in fundraising for more than three years.

4. Joining the dots
Nearly three years old, but this is still an inspiring way to illustrate a fundraising run by giving a sense of scale and mass participation.
