We get lots of requests for speakers to attend a function and present our charity to their audience. This could be a coffee morning with 12 people or the local Lions meeting with 50 people - it's about having the confidence to stand up and speak to a crowd about our work. Speaking to groups can bring in a significant amount of funds to the charity and our calendar is full a least a year in advance and we are  in need of speaker support.
