'Cumbria Fundraising Consultancy, simply the best!'
Ray McBride, Co-founder, Cumbria Wheelchair Sports Club "I knew when we met you,we had found a real gem, I'm grateful for all your efforts, CFC is a real asset to our club".
Trevor Hebden, Chair of the Carlisle Cathedral Project Management Group "CFC truly are awesome. You have done amazing things for our Cathedral Fratry project – we definitely scored a special coup when we employed you."
Peta Leigh,Church Warden, Christ Church, Great Brougton "Pauline rang me earlier to tell me the good news and I was so delighted! Thank you so much for all your hard work. It would have taken us years (if ever) to have got this far and CFC have done it in just a few short months! Thank God from all of us that you came into this village.
Please be assured that all CFC are doing for us is very very much appreciated. See you soon for a celebration! God bless you."
Renna Kellaway, MBE, Lake District Summer Music "I will always remember the presentation CFC gave when my colleague and I
were interviewing prospective fundraisers. Yours was a presentation on the ‘art/skill’ of fundraising and what is
needed in terms of information such as marketing etc. It struck us on that day of meeting various fundraisers, that CFC was outstanding for its quality of perception and personal sincerity. Looking back, LDSM was your first venture into music/ performing arts. And
now, nearly two years later, you have gathered and added a large chunk of
experience, dealt with masses of different Trusts, and, as far as LDSM is
concerned, all have been on the plain of ‘Making Music’.The difficulties for funding the ‘arts’ are common knowledge ...but you
have found ways of circumventing some of these and made personal contacts work
with clear success."
As ever, Renna
Caroline Gunning, Director, Crimson Chameleon Ltd. "An duo to be reckoned with, as ever you both were but now it's official! Well done to both of you on the success and spirit of CFC".
Renna Kellaway, MBE, Lake District Summer Music During the past year as our fundraising consultancy, CFC has initiated many new procedures and approaches to funding organisations which are not only producing very positive results, but are also giving us the tools, priorities and strategies required in order for us to carry on fundraising ourselves well into the future.
Joe Saxton, Driver of Ideas, nfpSynergy, Winner of the Lifetime Award 2012 - Insitute of Fundraising "CFC is one of the most energetic, committed and passionate fundraising consultancies I have met. They are full of ideas but great deliverers as well. I’d definitely recommend them".
Mandy Sanders, GMT Fundraising Manager at The Calvert Trust "I greatly admired CFC's creative energy and enthusiasm; they are able to overcome set-backs and encourage their team to keep on striving for success".
Councillor Henry Wormstrup, Mayor of Copeland (2009-2010) "Simply a delight! I can’t wait to
work with Cumbria Fundraising Consultancy on wider-based Cumbrian projects in the near future. I lost
faith in some of my mayoral charity work, but never in CFC. Great they are now
on the side of the whole of Cumbria – they will be superb for us".
Lee Hodgson, Secretary, Cumbria in Bloom "The support CFC gives for Cumbrian-based charities & projects is phenomenal. They never fail to deliver. I endorse them completely’".
