Event description


"Now here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!" The Queen of Hearts, Alice in Wonderland

Our 2019 Conference is based at Carden Park Hotel and Spa in Cheshire. Home to Lewis Carroll and his magical Alice in Wonderland. We invite you to join several hundred fellow hospice fundraisers on a journey to explore the mad crazy world of fundraising. We will be showcasing inspirational fundraising ideas, sharing great practice and gleaning hints and tips from our industry gurus.

Our aim with conference 2019 is for you to return to your hospice with at least one fantastic idea, solution or understanding of our manic but rewarding work. We want you to return to your hospice with that one little bit of magic!
