Second South West Charity Conference a “great success”

Second South West Charity Conference a “great success”Charities and businesses across the South West came together at Bath Racecourse for the second annual South West Charity Conference, proudly sponsored by regional accountants Milsted Langdon and its event partners.

The award-winning accountancy firm, along with Fidelius Group and solicitors Stone King, worked with business publication The Business Exchange to put on the popular event for charities and Not-For-Profit organisations from across the region and beyond, with some coming as far as Cornwall and Essex.

The day-long event included talks from a variety of speakers covering lots of interesting topics and offered guests plenty of networking opportunities to help those in the sector plan ahead for the future.

The day began with a Q&A session led by Anita Jaynes, Editor of The Business Exchange and organiser of the event, who spoke with the team behind Ubiety, an off-shoot revenue stream by Dorothy House Hospice, and Gill Freeman,  Partner and Head of Charity and Not-for-Profit at Milsted Langdon, about diversifying in the Third Sector.

Guests also took part in an exhibition space which saw 38 businesses and organisations, including Epoch Consulting, Friends of the RUH, Metrobank and the Genesis Trust, share information and advice with those who attended.

Reflecting on the event, Gill Freeman said: “The 2020 South West Charity Conference was a great success and it has been a pleasure to sponsor and play a part in such a significant event for the third sector in the South West.”

As well as taking part in the first panel talk, Gill also hosted a seminar on Financial FAQs, which was well received by delegates.

“I would like to thank The Business Exchange and all of our fellow sponsors for helping to make this event happen. I hope that we have many more events to share best practice and raise the bar in the charity sector in the years to come,” added Gill.
