amelia Kids provides a caring, nurturing, integrated nursery environment for all local children, including those with complex medical and/or life-limiting conditions, as well as children with a broad range of social, educational and additional needs. The Worthing and Adur Fund provided £1,395 to the group to purchase the “6 Seater Turtle Kiddy Bus” which allows the children to all go out together irrespective of their abilities. “We are so very grateful and thank the Worthing and Adur Fund for the grant to help fund our ‘Beach School’ project. The grant has helped purchase our wonderful six-seater push pram that has room for six children aged 0-4 years and is now out and about around Goring on Sea.”

Remember you will be moving from chair to chair so travel light!!

•

Read the delegate list to know who your targets may be so you can have a chat over lunch

•

Write something about the person you have just met on their business card, it will be hard to remember everyone after you’ve spoken to nearly 100 people

•

Follow up, you will have gathered many leads, make sure you make use of them

Finally – enjoy!
