Fundraising Day is the perfect opportunity for small charities to engage with current and new supporters to get fundraising.
As Volunteers Week 2017 comes to a close, ACRE wanted to take the time to say one final THANK-YOU to all volunteers, who are making England’s rural communities such vibrant and cohesive places to live.
ACRE is pleased to be working with The Phone Co-op to help increase the number of village halls and similar rural community buildings with a connection to broadband.
Staff at ACRE Network organisations identify funding, support volunteers and encourage partners to work together for the benefit of rural communities; they play an extremely valuable role and one to be celebrated during Volunteers Week.
Volunteers’ week is an opportunity for people to thank the tens of thousands of volunteers whose work behind the scenes in every community in the UK.
In January ACRE submitted a budget representation, urging the government to pledge £3 million in the Budget to refund the VAT paid by village halls.
The ACRE Network of specialist advisers for village halls and similar community buildings will hold their annual training event on 24th and 25th April in Birmingham.
