In addition to funders, the Northumberland CVA’s VCS Support Services team will be available to advise groups.

The deadline for booking is 9am on Thursday, March 14.

The National Lottery Community Fund, BBC Children in Need, Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Northumberland County Council are amongst the 13 funders available on the day.

Appointments with funders must be booked in advance.

Marc Johnson, funding officer at Northumberland CVA, said: “It doesn’t matter if you have just an initial idea or a well worked up project, or whether your project is large or small, our Funding Fair will give local groups a great opportunity to discuss their ideas with funders in an informal setting.”
