“The Village SOS Roadshow was a most worthwhile experience. We really liked hearing of other communities that have been successful in their projects and how they achieved this. There were very informative workshops, many interesting speakers and the opportunity to speak to other organisations in the same situation as us. We came away with a lot of contacts, a lot of information and a lot of motivation to keep going!”

“It was great to network with others and to offer and receive advice. The talks were engaging and to have funders all under one roof gave a unique opportunity to find the right direction in which to take our plans for a cafe to the next level.”

“This event was very helpful to us. Gaining information on how to finance our project and who can help access funds was invaluable. We came away feeling that we had access to a whole network of professionals to rely on for support and information and knowing that many others have started with nothing more than a vision, but they have succeeded.”
