'I speak for the whole Fighting Chance team in saying how impressed we were with the TFN event, the concept behind the organisation and the philosophy that you're crafting through your work. As I said on the night, it's extremely rare for organisations like ours to have the chance to connect with people like yourselves, so it's very hard to describe the value we can take from these opportunities. And not just the monetary value...the opportunity to share our work and our vision for change is simply priceless. I can only imagine how much work has gone into getting TFN into a place where it can offer the sort of opportunity you gave to us last week, so I just wanted to thank you all for what you're doing, and wish you all the best with the development of this wonderful platform. If there is anything I or the Fighting Chance team can do to give back, please just let us know. We'll be there'.
"The Funding Network event was a truly awesome opportunity for Heaps Decent. It’s rare that we get to speak about the work we do to a room full of interested people, who are there because they’re genuinely concerned about social issues and want to play a part in making change. This is a great platform for sharing information, making contacts and realising support that wouldn’t otherwise happen. And we were well prepared and encouraged by the TFN staff. The pledges went beyond our expectations and will support Heaps Decent’s project work in Juvenile Justice centres over the year ahead. A huge thanks to everyone who made this happen".
