Blog

Please feel free to browse our selection of blogs, brought to you by some of our chief officers, staff and Engage Members.

If you’ve never heard of a blog, it’s a short form of the words ‘web log’ – a regular story or feature that appears on the web.

Our Members are welcome to start a blog of their own if there’s something you want to tell people about regularly. Perhaps you’re volunteering on a project, or want to share your experience of dealing with an illness.

Members can of course put their comments or replies online against any active blog, but once again – please be nice.

Why is Fundraising so important to the NHS or more importantly the SWBH?

Tuesday July 22, 3:12pm

Fundraising is a word I used to associate with door to door sellers particularly or those overly happy individuals who always manage to stop you mid-way through your weekly shop in town. However, fundraising is so much more than that. Don’t get me wrong, I am no fundraising expert but...
