Fundraising skills for young people aged 14-25yrs

Young people can improve their fundraising skills to raise funds for their own clubs, voluntary groups, sports organisations or youth clubs. The aim is that young people can share their new found knowledge amongst their groups to help sustain their club in the future.  They can also utilise these skills in future employment or other activities e.g. in gaining Duke of Edinburgh award.
