A lunchtime meeting at Phoenix with Karon Phillips, Senior Consultant at Citrus Consultancy. I met Karon at another lunchtime meeting - a two-hour seminar on fundraising for charities held recently at Voluntary Action LeicesterShire. She offered then to meet one-to-one so we could discuss fundraising strategies for the Council of Faiths. Karon gives me some useful advice, encouragement and guidance today. I add these to the growing file of tips and pointers which I hope will help us restore our financial stability.
