First of all i have to apologise as i havent been updating my blog
i guess I'm pretty useless at this.
now on to the important topic....Fundraising.... OH MY GOD!! I never thought it would be as difficult as it has turned out to be!!
Its not an area i have ever been involved in before and I believe this will probably be the last time too!
At first I was really excited about being a part of the fundraising team. I have never really been the type to shy away from a new challenge and I weren't going to let this on be the first... And to this day I dont want to hide from it! but wow its turned out to be a challenge and a half.
I don't know if its just me not being persuasive enough or being the credit crunch (obviously hoping for the latter) but it has been virtually impossible for the team to get companies to part with their money! Its turning out to be a bit of a nightmare in all honesty. I guess I underestimated just how challenging it would be. More fool me really!!
On the up side, It has taught me how to better my telephone manner, and has given me a speech which has been embedded in my brain!
Here's hoping though that as we continue to ring out, someone will be willing to splash out!
