We're back on the conference trail... in a virtual sense!

August 14, 2020 - by Mark Higgitt

Back to news

We’re in the mood to be inspired

The ‘never-give-up’ spirit of income generators across the UK will be showcased at two eagerly anticipated virtual events as summer draws to a close – and the donorflex team is delighted to be a part of both.

Hospice Lotteries Association 2020

We were due to headline sponsor the Hospice Lotteries Association’s annual two-day conference for the eleventh year, in September, but we’ll be gathering with them online instead to celebrate all that’s great in the hospice lottery world.

The HLA team has moved mountains to organise the event in double-quick time, and we’ve recorded a special ‘Let there be light’ video – sharing great ideas from clients – to open the conference as headline sponsors on Wednesday, September 16.

The top-notch agenda includes the traditional contribution from the Gambling Commission, as well as an opportunity for share the successes that have helped to bolster their fundraising during the lockdown, so far.

Scottish Fundraising Conference 2020

Eight days later, our gaze will turn north for the first Scottish Fundraising Conference, which plugs a gap on the nation’s income generation diary on Thursday, September 24.

It’s the brainchild of Scottish fundraising luminaries Morag Fleming and Annemarie Devlin, who’ve created their own Devlin Fleming Fundraising consultancy during lockdown.

The day-long event promises to match the energy and inspiration that’s driving charities’ response to the challenges of Covid-19 – which is why we were quick to take up the invitation to sponsor the event.

“Back in March, we took an early team decision that the lockdown wasn’t going to mean we should step back from our normal conference commitments at a time when the crisis called for everyone being adaptable and imaginative,” says donorflex’s managing director, Brian Todd.

“To see Colette Newman and her colleagues overcoming the disappointment of cancelling HLA 2020, and being inspired by the challenge of organising an online alternative, was a reminder that the sector’s blessed with character and a can-do attitude.

“That’s certainly the case in Scotland. We’ve known Morag for many, many years – frankly, when she makes contact to suggest an idea, you don’t often say ‘no’. So we’re looking forward to feeding off the energy of the new Scottish event, too.”
