Highlights of the season

Published on

I have pleasure in offering you details of a wide range of events for you to choose from over the coming months. From the fun of our Carols by Candlelight to the insightful Philanthropy in Practice sessions, I hope you will find something here to interest you. Do also keep an eye on your inbox as your invitation to our Annual Celebration will be coming very soon.

As always, we are innovating to see if we can inspire more local philanthropy and our major new activity is Bristol Giving Day. The idea is very simple; on 10 October we’re asking businesses and people across Bristol to show their “generocity” and do something to raise money to help local good causes.

From cake sales to team challenges, businesses are planning fun ways to fundraise, with inspiration on the website we’ve created and donating the proceeds to local charities, community and voluntary groups. If you know any people or businesses that might like to take part in Bristol Giving Day, do please pass the website details on to them.

Our Annual Celebration takes place on Thursday 8 November and I do hope to see you there. If Trustees agree at the AGM in September we will have a new Chair of Trustees by then and I would love you to meet her.

As always, do let me or any of the team know whenever we can help support your philanthropy.
