Earlier this year POP ideas worked with the Big Lottery Fund to provide the opportunity for local organisations to present their project ‘idea’ to a multi-funder panel.
The event provided the opportunity to obtain information on the support available locally to get peoples great idea funded and hear from others about plans in Plymouth.
It presented a great networking opportunity for those attending and those pitching, it also provided an opportunity to understand more about the local priorities of the panel and gain support for their idea.
The morning consisted of a ‘pitch’ style session where attendees presented a short outline of their project, lasting no more than 5 minutes.
Since the 'project pitch' day 5 projects have been funded, totalling £32,420. The following funders, who were in attendance on the day, have backed the projects:
Could not fault it, the whole event was great!
The whole day was very well planned and executed, making what could have been a very nerve-wracking event actually quite enjoyable.
It was fascinating hearing about other local projects and the people behind them, also the people who would or already had benefited from them.
