Event Details

Join us for the Institute of Fundraising West Midlands Conference 2018 

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Institute of Fundraising West Midlands Conference 2018. 

We know that Fundraising is no easy task so this year we have put together an exciting conference around the motivations and mind set of fundraising.  

Wellbeing and mind set is an important aspect of our day to day life and this conference is aimed at promoting positive thinking and a “can do” attitude to ensure that you can be the best fundraiser that you can be!
 
The day will be packed with sessions lead by motivational speakers from the third sector who will inspire your fundraising career and get you 'fit for fundraising'.

The final schedule for the day will be emailed to delegates by the beginning of October.

 

As with all our conferences, there will be ample opportunities for you to meet and network with fellow fundraisers from across the West Midlands. The Institute of Fundraising West Midlands AGM will also be taking place on the day.

Plenary Speaker - Claire Lomas MBE
Claire has overcome all obstacles to succeed in the face of adversity.  

Claire’s life turned upside down on 6th May 2007 when she became paralysed from the chest down in a horse riding accident. Although Claire was determined from the start to make the best out of the situation there were plenty of days Claire struggled to even get the motivation to get out of bed

A year after her accident Claire met and later married Dan, they had a baby girl - Maisie. She found some new sports (skiing,handcycling, motorbikes), set up a business and fundraised to help get a cure for paralysis. 

In 2012 Claire became headline news worldwide. She was the first (and only) paralysed person to walk the London Marathon, she did it in a pioneering robotic suit. It took 17 days and raised £210,000 for Spinal Research.   

Claire has gone on to take up many more challenges raising over £500,000 whilst doing so. But guess what?... SHE WON'T STOP THERE!
