First Medway Arts Fundraising Camp hailed a success

The first Arts Fundraising Camp in Medway at The Historic Dockyard Chatham took place on 14 July.

Organised by Fundraising UK Ltd and hosted by the University’s School of Music & Fine Art, this event for arts fundraisers was a fantastic opportunity for local and regional arts professionals and fundraisers to learn, share good practice and network.

The sun was shining at the atmospheric location, with attendees travelling from across Kent and London from a diverse range of organisations and fundraising professionals.

Howard Lake, organiser and director for Fundraising UK commented: ‘It was a pleasure to see so much fundraising experience being shared amongst arts and culture fundraisers at Fundraising Camp at the University of Kent in Medway. And to see so many new contacts being made. Informal and practical events like this do seem to be an effective and enjoyable way of spreading fundraising ideas, especially if you’re a sole fundraiser or about to embark on a major fundraising campaign.’
