We just held our first virtual information event
It was to spread the word about Southend Emergency Fund and over 20 people from businesses and charities across Southend joined the webinar to find out more.
We told the story of Southend Emergency Fund, showed how we are already helping people across our town and encouraged those attending to become fund ambassadors and we thanked the 30 ambassador organisations already onboard.
Linda Elsdon from Leslie Edward Events said,
“It was great to be invited to learn about the Fund and to understand how they are helping the most vulnerable within our community. This type of initiative is much needed during these unprecedented times”.
Could you be a fund ambassador?
Ambassadors work with us to promote the fund, ensuring that we maximise our impact across the town. We’re looking for individuals, businesses, voluntary organisations and charities to get on board.
We explained how to become an ambassador:
- SEF will display your organisation’s name or logo on our website as an ambassador.
- You will display the SEF logo with a link to our site on your website, letting people know that you are helping local people during this crisis.
- You will spread the word through your social media channels, emails and networks, so that local people know about the impact we are having.
- You will consider other requests and opportunities from SEF.
