“Sparking Ideas” 

“Thank you for organising the funding fair.  I found the actual funding information useful but also being able to ask direct questions rather than a slow process of e-mailing was very helpful – immediate responses from funders sparks ideas for new projects and allowed me to think existing ideas  through better too.  As someone fairly new to the organisation I work for, the funding fair also gave me the opportunity to firm up my “elevator pitch”  ie telling funders exactly what we do in a short  space of time.”   Lucy Reynolds, A-C-E.
