BASILDON Council is to dish out fundraising advice to help community groups generate money.

The authority’s Funding Fair 2014 is a networking event for charities, community groups and churches to learn about securing funds from Goverment and other charities.

It takes place on Monday, July 7, in the St George’s Suite at the Basildon Centre, from 9.30am to 1.15pm.

Terri Sargent, Basildon councillor responsible for environment and community, said: “The event will bring together experts offering helpful advice and ideas. It will also provide valuable insight into the roles and responsibilities of trustees working in the voluntary and communities sector.”
