Community Foundation is delighted to be curating an inspiring programme of events for Trustees' Week 2-6 November 2020. With support from International Blue Cross, Young Trustees Movement, Wrigleys LLP and other valued partners, there will be a choice of open forums for discussion, practical workshops and networking opportunities.
