Plan your day at TBE South West Charity Conference & Expo

By Anita Jaynes on 11 June, 2024

The 6th annual TBE South West Charity Conference & Expo is happening this Thursday 13th June at Bath Racecourse.

The theme of the day is ‘Driving Positive Change’ with the aim to open up conversations around societal issues and how we can all work collectively to make a difference in our community.

The event is being delivered in partnership with our sponsors Milsted Langdon, St John’s Foundation and Stone King and is set to be a packed day of listening, learning and connection.

Why attend as a charity/ not for profit?

If you work for a charity or not for profit organisation, the day is an opportunity to promote your current fundraising campaigns and volunteering opportunities, as well as connecting with sector peers and taking away learnings from the many talks and seminar sessions planned for the day.

Why attend as a business?

  • Use the day as an opportunity to choose the causes you would like to support through time or fundraising efforts.
  • Promote your business if you provide services to the Third Sector.

Why attend as an individual?

  • Discover how you can help through donating your time or through fundraising efforts.
  • Learn from the many seminars planned throughout the day.
