“In addition to the formal content, the opportunity to meet and learn from each other, is always appreciated.”

The event will feature a number of speakers and breakout sessions, designed to help and support charities of all shapes and sizes.

In addition to general updates regarding the Charity Commission and current tax issues other topics will range from charity governance and grant applications to the GDPR and health and safety.

Mr Jackson said: “Peterborough has a thriving charity sector from small community based groups to the big household names – which is one of the reasons this annual event is always so well supported.”

The event is free to charities (£50 + VAT to others).
