Partner at Midas Charity Appeals, Martin Shaw, added: “I will be focusing on helping the charities to recognise their current fundraising capabilities and how to extend their hands on fundraising.

“We fully appreciate how much charities have been struggling during the recession and good governance can make all the difference to a charity. We will show the attendees how you can develop and raise the funds that you need,” Mr Shaw said.
