Actions and Detail Panel


Friday Fundraising Club is a weekly gathering of community champions collaborating to grow their fundraising knowledge and experience.

About this event

Friday Fundraising Club (FFC) is a one hour, weekly session where Lewisham voluntary and community groups learn from one another and from our speakers. If you want to learn, network and contribute positively this place is for you! Sign up for each of the weeks that you are interested in and you will get any notes/recordings if they are available for that week.

FFC also has a WhatsApp and LinkedIn group. Contact if you are interested in joining and explain what voluntary and community work your group is doing in the borough.

Normal Structure

1) Introduce your organisation

2) 'Funding MOT' Get in touch beforehand if your group has a fundraising related problem and Karen will see if there is a slot in our MOT section. You'll get the chance to share your problem and the group will crowdsource solutions. These have been great at generating ideas to tricky issues!

3) Micro-training or interactive session. Topics vary week to week, please see below.

4) Any other questions/good news.

We welcome community champions of all skill levels to join in this innovative community development initiative. The main thing is a desire to learn, contribute and see Lewisham thrive.
