Just as we approached the final few days of summer, Jo and Greg, Hope for the Futureâ€™s Director and her husband, organised a BBQ to raise money for the charity. It was an afternoon to remember with brilliant food and company, an entertaining auction and the chance to learn more about the work of the charity.
“Seeing Hope for the Future grow from a small cluster of Yorkshire churches to a national organisation training over a thousand people each year has been an amazing experience. We held the BBQ in our allotment on the edge of the Peak District to provide a space where people could enjoy the natural environment whilst doing something to benefit it. There is still a very low awareness about climate change in Parliament and beyond, so we were so grateful to everyone who turned out to raise £400 for the work. Hope for the Future's work to equip NGOs, local groups and individuals around the UK to more effectively communicate climate change with politicians is something our friends, family and local community were really glad to support”
- Our Director Jo and her husband Greg reflect on the fundraiser
None of the brilliant work that Hope for the Future does could be done without the generosity of those that have supported us over the last five years. As Hope for the Future continues to grow we need to grow to maintain our capacity to support constituents and offer training to all those who will benefit from it.
We’re really pleased to welcome Sarah Buck as our new fundraiser. Sarah would like to encourage anyone who has been feeling inspired and would like to fundraise for Hope for the Future, to get in touch at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sarah is originally from a small town called Oswaldtwistle (home of the world's largest pear drop!) but Sheffield is currently home. She has been a fundraiser for a number of organisations, from big ones like Christian Aid, to small ones like the Genesis Trust and Clifton Park Museum. She currently works part time for a brilliant international development charity and is really excited to be joining Hope for the Future as their new fundraiser for one day a week. When Sarah is not busy fundraising, she loves to walk, camp, bake and craft.
