"The conference agenda is suitable for employees and trustees of charities as well as new and potential trustees. In addition to the formal content, the opportunity to meet and learn from each other, is always appreciated." said Mark Jackson, senior director at Rawlinsons.

"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," he added.

The event is free to charities (50.00 plus VAT to others) and registration for the event will commence at 9.00am, with the presentations taking place between 9.30am and 4.00pm, with a buffet lunch provided to allow for further discussion and networking.
