Come and meet Trust for London and the Heritage Lottery Fund during this interactive morning event at CVA!

We will have:

  1. Presentations by the two funders, followed by questions and answers from (10.30am to 11.40 am), followed by
  2. A Dragons' Den (11.30am-1.40pm), which will see six local groups pitching their project to Trust for London, Heritage Lottery Fund, Croydon Council (Active Communities Fund) and Superhighways to get tips/suggestions/comments! The Dragons' Den will be, this time, open to the public so stay over as much as you like as it is bound to be a great learning experience for all!
